  1. One long
    two short
    Cannot detect any RAM installed

    1. Try re-installing the RAM module.
    2. Try installing the RAM module onto other DIMM slots.
    3. Clean the golden finger on the RAM module with white eraser, and
    clean the memory slot with soft brash, then install the memory back
    onto the slot.
    4. Please replace your memory module

    5. Consult the manual on how and where the memory needs to be populated in the memory slots, for single ch mode, dual ch mode or Tri ch mode if supported.
  2. Memory Type :
    DDR3, 1066/1333/1600, UDIMM, with ECC
    Memory Size :
    1GB, 2GB, 4GB, 8GB UDIMM

    Your part number corresponds to Registered memory which is not supported. UDIMM means UNBUFFERED. ECC is short for Error-Correcting Code memory. You need both ECC and Unbuffered memory.

    For example:
    Crucial 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR3 1333 MT/s (PC3-10600) CL9 Unbuffered ECC
