If it isn't compatible it won't boot.

You'll probably get beeps from the motherboard.

Ahhh...

If you put your correct RAM back in it should work fine.

Yep he is right, you have got nothing to loose even if you put the wrong on in

Thanks

will try it now

sorry but due to different physical characteristics and voltages you may actually damage the board fitting them, be very sure about what they are and what the board takes,
i've had to go to a few calls where people have done this

How do you mean damage them?

I installed my tv tuner card, howeve trthe disk wont load and is sayin "Need admin rights" eventho im admin...


This due to that?

unlikely that its due to physical damage, but may be voltages incorrect causing corruption
Also if the bios is failing to control the correct timing on the different sticks you will get random data errors which may cause this, fraid if that happens the corruption caused may be written to disk and eventually ruin the OS.
could be a thousand reasons why the effect with tv tuner is happening tho.
Correct drivers for OS?, perhaps the install actually requires you are Admin rather than being an admin, that is different, find the exe that controls the install, right click on it, then run as "admin"

When seeking help it's best to start at the beginning............

LIST YOUR HARDWARE. :roll:
