I have a new ASUS A8N-SLI Premium MB with 1 gig (2x512MB 400MHz -
TWINX1024-3200C2PT) of Corsair XMS Platinum series DDR. The memory is
installed in the A-1 & B-1 slots. Everything works OK. However, when I add
a second gig of Corsair non-Platinum series (2x512MB 400MHz -
TWINX1024-3200C2) DDR memory to the A-2 and B-2 slots, the system will not
boot and the screen stays off. I have also paired the Platinum Series
memory to A-1 & A-2 and Non-Platinum series to B-1 & B-2 with no success.

Any ideas?

The motherboard chipset can not handle 4a double-sided DIMMs. You'll
see that posters on alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.asus have similar problems.

Thanks,

I returned and purchased the 2 gig Corsair (2 x1024) and it's working fine!
