I'm trying to upgrade my memory to 3120 but it always failed. Even if I attempt to change it, it will still failed. I checked on it and it was unbuffered, non-ECC and everything, yet I'm still hearing beep codes. What can I do? All the memory are new so I don't really know the problem behind it.

I also encounter memory issues on my computer because I use memory cards with different speeds. My old CPU only supports two memory slots and it is using DDR1 type RAM. It has one 512 MB DDR400 and one 256 MB DDR333. The problem with this setup is that the memory runs at a slower speed though the bigger size is faster.

The problem when installing memory cards with different speeds is that the computer takes the speed of the memory card with the lower speed. So, in my setup, the 512 MB DDR400 runs as DDR333 which is below its supposed speed. Also, when installing or upgrading the memory of your computer, make sure the memory you install are of the same type.

If your board supports DDR2 RAM, you should only install and use DDR2 memory cards. If your CPU supports DDR3 type then install only DDR3 memory cards. Don’t try installing memory cards with different types because it will not fit the slot.
