Computer won't start up after installing ram.

Can someone help me out?

I have 3 GB of ram, which is horrible considering I want to play games like Dark Souls III on my pc. When I try to replace my 1GB and 2GB ram sticks with two 4GB sticks or one 8GB stick it doesn't work. My PC doesn't even attempt to launch, and instead makes a continuous beep. I know the ram sticks aren't defective as they work perfectly fine in my brother's PC.

Motherboard: Manufacturer: Emachine. Product: EL1852G.
SerialNumber: Not listed. Version: Not listed.
CPU: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5800 @ 3.20GHz
PSU: Dell NPS-305AB C

  1. What are the other specs of your computer? Motherboard, CPU, PSU?

    Bad news, the maximum supported RAM is 4GB of DDR3. And it might be max supported size two x 2GB sticks...

    I updated the post with that info added.
  5. Again, looks like that board does not like 4GB sticks...

    Do you have any more information about the board? All that I am finding is dead ends at 4GB (2 x 2GB PC3-12800) max.

    Nope I don't have any more info on the board. Can you link me to a cheap board that can have 8GB ram?
  7. This looks like the best bet on Newegg. These boards are becoming harder and harder to find. New anyways. Not 100% sure on compatibility, but it supports 8GB (2 x 4GB DDR3 1066/800) of RAM. Also has an LGA 775 socket, but merely says "Pentium" CPU. Considering it also supports Core 2 Duos, quads, extremes and "Celeron" (again, assuming Celeron dual cores), it should support your Pentium Dual-Core E5800. SHOULD, being the keyword there. I'll see if I can find any more details about the board. And I have not checked Amazon or eBay yet. Neweggs price = $69.99 plus shipping.
