have a dg45id mobo which apparently has 4 ram slots of 2gigs 800mhz each '
lets name the 4 ram slots as a,b,c and d.
i have 2 ram sticks of transcend ddr2 800 mhz each
the prob starts here ...
1. if i install 1 ram stick in slot a or b....comp boots and works flawlessly if i install either of these ram sticks in slot c and d....i get the beep sound and no display at all !
2.now if i install both the ram sticks in slot a and b then i get no display at all but no beep sound either
3.then if i remove my graphic card and keep the display to the onboard graphics with both the ram sticks in slots a and b.... then i do get the display but then if i boot my win 7..the comp restarts and on xp...i get BSOD with the foll error
and at the bottom its wrritten
ACPI.sys_address BA77AA97 base at BA779000 Date Stamp 4117A27
i have no clue what this means ....experts pls pour in ur views...
4.Further...on the slots c and d ....if i put both the ram sticks i hear the beep sound.
5. then at times....if i keep my display on graphic card then then i dont get display most of the times...i have to remove nd reinsert the ram stick several times before i see the display...which is very frustrating..
6. on onboard graphics i get proper display as and when if i remove or add ram sticks...other than the bsod if both the ram sticks are together on slots a and b
i have run a memory diagonistics nd found no errors so far...
Now the question is what should i do....is Mobo at fault...or the graphic card...or the ram sticks
Noob ques : is it possible that i m not inserting the ram sticks properly...as far as i knw ...there is only one way in which the ram stick goes into the slot....right ?
Please put in ur views....i m gonna go 2moro to rma my mouse...pls let me knw if my mobo or ram are at fault....so that i can them along as well...
Thanx is the least i can say !!
looking forth for the solutions ...bare me for my limited knowledge
further one more thing...i went thru the manual of my mobo and apparently one slot has always to be filled if i m havin more than one stick...so according to manual DIMM 0 should always be filled... now i did this according to the manual....i installed one stick on dimm 0 as per manual and one on other slot and then again in XP i got BSOd but this tym with foll error :
Page Fault in Non Paged Area.. problem casued by Classpnp.sys
what does this indicate...a faulty ram stick..perhaps ?
but strange thing is i repeated the above config with a diff ram stick which works when alone in one of the slot...but i got beep sound with the combination
and one last thing...as per my namin convention...no matter which ram stick i put in slots c and d i always get a beep sound...and except if i install all three ram sticks then there is no beep sound but no display either
