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.

if you have checked what black said, try a different ddr2 ram and see if it works. you probably have a bad ram slot. happened to me once.

Why DDR2 too? That is kind of old, and not many motherboards support it unless you know, it is from the early 2000s :P

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.

The parts may have been exposed to liquids in their lifetime, and are possibly fried.

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.

I misread, I apologize. I though he just pulled these parts out of a box and slapped them together, as old as they are. Sorry, you are right most likely :D
