Replace RAM in G5 Power Mac New does not show up

I place 4 1 gb RAM cards and none of them are recognized.

I checked to be sure they are seated well. They are.

I avoided the "high density" RAM chips because my research showed they were not compatible with Apple G5 Power Macs.

I order the "low density" RAM chips.

Do you know if this was a mistake or might it be something else.

Checking Mactracker I find the following memory requirements


Early 2004 to early 2005---PC-3200

Late 2005---PC2-4200

Assuming your memory matches these requirements and are of good quality they should work. Did you install them in pairs? I am including a link on The Powermac that should help you. Good luck
