    Most SIMMs need 5 volts, while most DIMMs need 3 volts. Some motherboards allow you to use one type or the other, but not both at the same time. These motherboards generally have a jumper on them to change the power supplied to the memory from 5 volts to 3 volts. Look for the jumper. You may be giving too much voltage to the DIMMs and they are simply shutting down.
