    Hey guys, I have ASUS P5KPL-AM/PS Motherboard.. Till now i was using 2GB RAM, thought of upgrading the RAM and bought 1 GB RAM, When i put the two RAM in 2 slots i won't get the display on the screen, but when i use a single RAM, i'll get the display,,,, Any solutions..?
    P.S both RAM works, when inserted one at a time.

    My PC specs:
    Windows 7 ultimate 64bit.
    ASUS P5KPL-AM/PS Motherboard.
    Intel core 2 quad Q6600 2.40 Ghz.
    2GB RAM..

    It sounds like you either have a problem with the second slot, or the two modules are not compatible with each other.
    1. Can you try a single module in the second slot with the first one empty to ensure that works. You might find it's quite tight and needs extra pressure to install the module fully as this slot was previously unused.
    2. Providing the second slot works fine, can you provide the details of each module (including part#) as there might be some subtle difference not allowing them to boot together.

    Both slots works fine, i have tested that, by placing RAM into both slots...
    Both the RAM are off different manufacturer....
    I'm sorry i don't know what module is, is it concerning about RAM or Motherboard slot...
    How to find out the module..?

    Sorry, by module I meant memory module. The details should be written on the memory on a sticker. It should say something like PC2-6400U or similar but if you could just let us know everything written on the stickers on both modules, and also how many black chips are on each side of both modules hopefully that will help determine the issue

    The two sticks you have are not compatible.
