ok, then you have the wrong 4GB (2x2GB?) sticks.   You might review the 
memory specs for your motherboard, not all DDR2 is the same.
http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d975xbx/sb/CS-026567.htm

specifically, you need 1.8-1.9V DDR2 unbuffered DIMMs, requires SPD, 667 
and 533Mhz.  2GB dimms must be organized as 8 128Mx8 dimms on each side.

personally, I'd pick my ram from this page
http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=D975XBX

the stuff you buy through their guaranteed compatability program WILL work.
