I have NO idea how to place my RAM back into the slots...i took the sticks out and i believe i placed them in the wrong way, even though they all clicked in place. I believe this because once before i had put in a RAM stick wrong and my computer beeped and clicked. Then i put it in correctly and my computer worked. Now im having the same beeping and clicking when i turn on my computer. I have two blue slots, and two black slots

| | ||
i clicked each RAM stick facing the same direction in every slot. Sticker side facing to the right. Is that the correct way to put them in?

Motherboard information:
•Manufacturer: ECS
•Motherboard Name: MCP61PM-HM

There is a notch in the RAM than has to align with a raised area in the Mobo RAM slot.
Generally the RAM's label will be oriented the way you have yours.
Please elaborate on "beeps and clicks".

Well when i turn the computer on, it clicks once every 2,3 or 5 seconds then it starts a high pitched beeping. It sounds like its coming from the motherboard, when i put my ear closer to try to hear where it was coming from,

Also, the pattern of beeps goes like this:
short beep.......long beep (34 second interval) short beep.......long beep
and it continues that way.

I just noticed you have another post concerning the same problem. Please don't make double posts on the same subject. It's confusing and makes it difficult to help you.
