RAM modules should be bought in complete kits to ensure they are matched; all sticks should be the same brand, same size, and have the same specs. Otherwise, they may not play well together. Your new RAM module obviously is a mismatch so, yes, your money was not well spent. I'm sorry the news isn't better.
To find out what will work for you, restore your RAM to the original RAM configuration, then download and run the memory scanner from Crucial
. That will tell you what RAM will work with your MOBO.
Also, if you would fill out the complete specs for your system, it will make it much easier for people to help you. If you have trouble fill out your specs, start a new thread and ask for help.
