Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi Deanatscout,

We need some more info about your environment.
Can you please inform what is the motherboard in question? Does it support 2GB of RAM?

Considering it supports and from my experience, those beeps might be related to memory speed. The speed of your new RAM is probably different (higher) than the motherboard supports. Also, if you are mixing different RAM modules, they might have different speed ratios.

Please post back with some more info.

    Usually if it beeps like that, you have the wrong memory or are mixing wrong types of memory.

    As ingram mentioned the beep is either wrong memory/mixing types or might even be a faulty module or modules? Have you tried a different module?

    Based on the stats you HAVE provided, it sounds doubtful that the "no name" server you're attempting to upgrade can handle the newer hardware - thus the POST errors...
