unable to install more RAM on ML570 G3

Hi,
I have ML 570 G3 server running windows 2003 server enterprise edition. we have 4 x 512 RAM and I have bought 1 x 2 G module (PC2-3200R-333-12-K0) but when I install this with the current ram, I get 3 long beeps.
I have tried to remove the old ram and install only the new but same.....3 long beeps.
Can anyone please advise. thank

Re: unable to install more RAM on ML570 G3

hi

so you have 4 DIMMS and want to add 1 more having 5?

that's impossible DIMMS must be in pairs that's why when you put only the 1 x 2 GB you got more beeps you have to see memories in pairs

I was installing the RAM which was 2 RANK and then had another set of chips which wasn't dual rank and that worked. Thanks for your message

Hi,
these Ram are compatible with your server. please check 512 Ram specification and replace 1 G Ram with them

Hi
DIMMs must be installed in pairs and same ranking specifications ( SR or DR )on board.
Each HP ProLiant ML570 G3 memory board supports 8 loads:
SR DIMM => 1 load
DR DIMM => 2 loads
