Windergard, I was checking the specifications of the memory and it looks to be compatible with your motherboard, however I couldn’t find too much information about it.
So, in order to find out the reason why this memory is not working on your system we would need to run some basic troubleshooting.
Please let me know if you are able to boot up using only one memory stick on DIMM #1 (blue)?
- Would you test the system out of the chassis, minimal configuration (Motherboard, processor, power supply, 1 memory stick and video card)
- Try removing the CMOS battery and leave the system without it for about an hour. Then put it back on and restart the system. http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-028780.htm?wapkw=clear+cmos+battery#datetime
- Could you please try one memory stick at the time, testing each DIMM, just to make sure all of them recognize the memory you are putting on?
- Start adding one extra stick of memory at the time and try to boot up again using 2 sticks, then 3 and finally all 4 sticks.
Let me know the result.
Thanks Sylvia, it turned out that BOTH the sticks were bad right out of the box. I had them replaced and my system booted up immediately.
Great news Windergard. I'm glad to know your system is working now!
