Solved

Same RAM Model, Speed, Freq, Etc. but a year older

so i bought the same G Skill F3-8500CL7D-8GBRL RAM from a Previous build i had, last year and one of my sticks went bad, i figured since the sticks were the same exact model speed, etc. that i could use one of the older sticks from my previous build to replace the bad stick. i get hung up on Verifying DMI Pool, or my windows tries to auto repair and it goes into a restart loop. I have the GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 Mobo with AMD FX 6300 Vishera 95W, and G. Skill Ripjaw 4GB F3-8500CL7D-8GBRL made in Jan 2016 and the replacement im trying to use is the same EXACT but from Feb 2015. It registers on the bootup screen as 8GB. so i know its connected correctly. just need help booting. PLEASE HELP!

  1. Have you tried a CMOS reset.
    Remove Power from PC
    Unplug CMOS(watch) Battery
    locate the CMOS pins on the motherboard.
    The are the bottom left, CLR_CMOS in the picture of your board

    Close up


    Now using something small and metal, SHORT THESE 2 PINS WHILE DEPRESSING THE CASE POWER FOR 15 SECONDS.
    Make sure you are shorting them and depressing the power button for 15 seconds simultaneously.
    This drains all the power, and reset the CMOS.
    attempt a boot, let me know :)

    Typically works for ram issues

    Even adding the exact memory that was not made and sold in a matched set sometimes will not work together.
    Install the working memory, go into BIOS, increase the memory voltage to 1.55 volts, save and exit, shut PC down, install the other stick and try it again.

    does it give you POST code "bf"? Typically means one of your sticks is bad or the channel is having trouble reading it, swap around your sticks and reseat them, turn on and see if it works. sometimes it takes more than once.
