    You have older ram that wont fit? Must not be DDR2 then. Voltage applied is not so much the issue or dead/dying ram, I was thinking more along the lines of not compatible.

    And yes, both could be dead, but you are right that is not too likely

    Do you have cash to spare? If so I would suggest you buy some decent DDR2, most nice can be had for $40-50 for 2x1, even better deals if you live in the US. If you do, and would like me to show you a few brands that have decent deals let me know

    right, it's not DDR2. i got the ram i have for like 22 dollars at newegg, which i thought was amazing.
    hopefully i will be able to use my friend's ram and see if that is the problem with this setup...
    do you think it could be a power supply issue or an IDE controller issue?

    Well good luck with your tests, No I dont think either of those are the issue at all. Either bad or incompatible ram or a bad board is my thoughts
