xw6200 workstation 1gb sticks not working

HP Recommended

Hi guys how you doing. I registered on these forums due to a little problem i had today. I recently purchased memory for my

xw6200. Its the kingston kth-xw8200/1gb. 

http://cgi.ebay.com/Kingston-KTH-XW8200-1G-1GB-400MHz-DDR2-400-PC2-3200-/250653130144?cmd=ViewItem&p...

According to the memory specs this memory is designed for my workstation and should be working with no blips. Ive tried reseating the memory in this configuration

slot 1-1gb

slot 2-1gb

slot 3-none

slot 4-none

but the system just repeats 5 beeps on startup and wont boot.

I know its not a problem with the mobo b/c i have 2gb in there right now (512x4) so maybe the ram is just doa because it is supported by my system. Im not sure. any help would be appreciated, thanks

The slots 1 & 2 you are referring to should be closest to the serial port.  If there is a BIOS update available for the computer install it.  Test the two 1GB DIMMs one at a time to see if one works and one fails.  If that happens then you do have a bad DIMM.  If they both fail then there is more to it than that.  In which case you should contact Kingston tech support by phone, (800) 435-0640, to verify if the memory is indeed authentic Kingston ram.  Many counterfeit parts are being sold on Ebay these days.
