Just got a 1GB Ram module but is not detected in POST screen in a Abit AN7 (based on an KT7)

I have tried installing it on its own but the PC just beeps at me and fails to boot.

Is it the memory or the motherboard?

Did you check the manufacturer's specs on the mobo to see what it can take? I bet you didn't.

No I just thought it would work because I did not know the information existed. The seller has now found out that the mobo is incompatible with high density (128x4) ram and requires low density (64x8) ram. The specs of both of these ram are the same! Exchange on the way for $25.

Now you know what to do the next time you want to add memory.
