Does your motherboard support the amount of RAM you are trying to put in it? There is a limit you know. Tell us what you are trying to put into the board and the motherboard info please.

People have to work with what they've got...
Anyway... as old as this PC is (given the DDR2) It is possible the parts are going bad.
You can try removing the memory from the PC and blowing out the slots with some canned air. And also take some alcohol (not the drinking kind) and a q-tip and clean the contacts on the memory. Let it dry THOROUGHLY(about a day should do it)! Then plug it back in and give it another try.
Ehh?? That came out nowhere...
With electricity constantly flowing through these parts, connections just start to break down over time. Corrosion, normal wear and tear... there doesn't need to be an accident of any sorts to cause equipment failure.
