          What RAM did you buy? Also what CPU do you have?

           

          You should use RAM that meets this specification:

          System Memory Features
          The board has two DIMM sockets and supports the following memory features:

          • Two 240-pin DDR3 SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) sockets
          • Support for DDR3 1066 MHz or DDR3 800 MHz DIMMs
          • Support for up to 4 GB total system memory
          • Single or dual channel operation
          • Memory voltage: 1.35V to 1.65V

          Using 4-GB DIMMs may cause system instability and subsequent data  loss. It is recommended to install only DIMMs with a capacity of 2 GB  and less in the board’s memory sockets.
