we have a dell t310 that had 2 2GB Modules. we bought 2 4GB modules and tried to install them in conjunction but no matter how I plug them into the slots the machine wont boot with all 4 strips, just 2 of either the old or the new. the machine has 2 sets of 3 slots. any advise anyone? I would like to be able to use all 12 gigs instead of 8... we have 50 or so workstations

Is all the RAM matching in Brand/Specs? Will the Mobo accept 4GB RAM sticks?
Post some hardware brands/model numbers might prove helpful.

im at home right now but the 2 new 4GB modules run in it alone, as do the old 2 2GB ones. the new brand i bought is crucial and the ones that came with the machine are blue made in koria. haha sorry thats all I can remember off of the top of my head. they are both ddr3 1333mhz

That would suggest the RAM brands are not compatible. Mixing RAM brands/specs commonly results in your problem.

Both RAM brands are apparently compatible with the Mobo but not with each other.

That would be a good idea. Crucial is pretty much fool proof for compatibility and should meet your needs well.
