Both the memory you had and the new one are DDR2. Your motherboard might have both DDR and DDR2 slots make sure it's in the correct slot. Also, some motherboards are 'picky' about the type of memory you can put in them. The memory you already had is DDR2-800, the new is DDR2-667, it might not like that, strange as that may sound.

nope they're both DDR2-667. the MOBO manual specified it can support up to 8 gig. i provided the link of the MOBO manufacturer. the voltage is also set at 1.8, so i really dont know whats wrong. I updated my windows a while ago just to be sure that nothings wrong, but still no avail. I can only run 3 gig RAM on safe mode

The bios mem test runs ok too, singe and dual channel.

thanks for the rep!

Are you really sure they are both DDR2-667? Because the link you provided says DDR2 800 /1066...
