i have installed 2gb of dominator 800 ddr2 memory on a pc.

its a msi 7293 or something might be old.

when i boot up i get no screen, but continuous repeated long beeps.

any ideas what this means

Check one stick at a time.. then in different banks.

If the same stick is causing problems in both banks but the other stick works then you have located a faulty stick.

If a single stick is causing problems in one bank but not the other bank you could have a faulty memory controller (depending on chipset) and/or motherboard.
