When I added a second 1G (matched to the other 1G) I got this beeping sound. When I looked at the slots prior to installing, the original 1G was in slot 4. I removed the second 1G and reinstalled the original in slot 3 and still got the beep with slot 4 empty. I put the new 1G in slot 4 and it worked fine. I then put the other 1G in slot 3 along with the other 1G in slot slot 4 and it still beeped. It appears that slot 3 does not like either of the 1G chips. What is up with this?
