ASUS P5N32-SLI Deluxe
2 x Giel PC@-5300 (1 DIMM in slot A1, 1 DIMM in slot B1: dual channel config)
2 x GeForce 7800 GT
WinXP Pro SP2 etc
last night system locked up. Rebooted and would not POST. Tried a bunch of things that did not work. I took the DIMM out of slot B1 and system POSTed and booted fine. So i figure that the DIMM must have gone bad.
As a check, I took the 'newley deemed bad' DIMM and put it in RAM slot A1 and the system POSTed and booted fine. I put the other DIMM in slot B1 (with other DIMM in A1) and no POST.
I then put 1 DIMM in A1 and the other in A2 and the system posted and booted well. Of course, I get no dual channel this way.
So, did the B1 slot go bad for some reason? Anybody see this issues before?
