  1. Whats your system specs bro

    maybe i can help you better if i know whas inside. yuo cant run ddr2 and 3 in the same pc. and your memory speed has to be supported by your motherboard (e.g say running a Core 2 duo with ddr3 800 you can install ddr3 1333mhz memory it will run at 800mhz speed of the s
  2. That mobo allows for DDR2 or DDR3 to be used individually. If you are mixing DDR2 and 3 then it will not work. Can you give any more details on your PC?
  3. E7500 processor
    i am only using one ddr3 ram(corsaire)
  4. dude im lazy to go looking for posts just send your system specs

    all i ask is motherboard and cpu and ram you had running before you installed the new dimm

    processor: E7500 core 2 duo 2.93ghz
    mobo: Gigabyte GA g41 combo
    earlier ram: 1gb kingston 800mhz ddr2
  6. Did you update your bios? I would put old memory back in, update the bios and try again that is possibly the issue.

    from where willl i get the bios update??
    is it a normal installer or do i have to boot with it ??
  8. take out the old memory and put the new one in if it doesnt work put the old one back and go with a bios update

    test each dimm individually before you pair them

    It is a boot type of install. needs to be on a USB drive, and already unzipped.
