The Best Answer

Please identify your desktop PC with its product name and product number.
If you are upgrading and want the upgrade to work right the first time:
1) Only replace memory in pairs of guaranteed compatible memory modules from well known manufacturers.
2) Find compatible memory by searching online with your desktop PC's complete product name + upgrade memory as keywords in the search.
4) Do not use the memory specifications from mtherboard specifications to match with memory modules that are sold by a vendor. Using this crapshoot method is a financial risk. It definitely increases chances of  a PC not even passing the POST (power on self test) of the BIOS during the PC's boot process. It does not take advantage of a manufacturer's big selling point...Guaranteed compatibility.
