Default Compaq Evo Desktop memory problem

A friend has a Compaq Evo desktop computer (circa 2002) that won't boot up.
It gives the
beep sequence, 1 short, 2 long and also the Num-Lock LED blinks
continuously. According to the documentation for this particular computer,
these symptoms indicate it's probably something to do with mixing ECC with
non-ECC memory.

The memory he has on board is from Kingston - KTC-D320/128 - and is in both
memory slots. Question 1 is - is this DDR or DDR2 memory and question 2
is - ECC or non-ECC?

Also, has anyone else experienced this type of problem with this type of
computer (and does HP have something to do with the Compaq Evo's)?

Thanks for any help here.

How about also explaining which model of Evo this one is. Different models
often have different requirements for the type of memory. A circa 2002 computer
is too old to use DDR2. KTC-D320/128 is supposed to be non-parity DDR, PC2700
