Hello, I have recently installed an AMD Phenom X6 1090T from another X6 (It was a lower model, I forget at the moment), but after I installed it, I noticed that my RAM had been cut in half, from 8 Gigs to 4. I checked if my 4X2 sticks were in place, and after removing them and placing them back in, there was no difference. Here are my specs:
Upon updating my bios and restarting, my computer will not turn on, and signals a memory error (3 continuous beeps). This only happens when I have both sticks in. If I have one stick, it will boot normally.
Now, here's my question: was it a bent CPU pin that's defecting the 2nd memory slot, or was it the motherboard that said "NOPE!" to my new CPU and decided to defect the 2nd slot?
