    D510MO with 4Gb Corsair CM2X2048-6400C4 ram failing to boot

      Hi,

       

      I've just received my D510MO and instantly started it up using 2 x 2Gb of corsair memory. However the board refuses to boot, simply showing a blank screen (screen LED doesn't even turn green, so it's not receiving any input). The memory is DDR2 non-ecc 800mhz ram as specified.

       

      If I take one of the two memory sticks out and replace with a 1Gb corsair stick (also 800mhz non-ecc ram) then the board will boot up fine (with 3Gb of ram)

       

      Both the 2Gb sticks and the 1Gb sticks are rated for 4-4-4-12, but the bios insists they should run at 8-8-8-27. Trying to manually set the timings results in a board that will not boot, not matter which ram sticks I put in. I then have to go into recovery-mode and reset the timings to "auto" to get it to boot.

       

      I'm running the latest bios upgrade (version 0175). The memory giving me problems is the Corsair CM2X2048-6400C4DHZ version.

       

      Does anyone have any ideas?

       

      Thanks,

      Jesper
