My brand new custom built pc specs
Intel core 2 quad q8200
Gigabyte ep45 ds3p bios f8
650w psu i green power
2x2048mb 800 mhz corsair memory ( problem)
1024 mb corsair ram
When i connect the 2 dual channel memory ram chips in the motherboard the system becomes unstable and doesnt boot successfully
when i just connect the 1 gig ram on it own the system boots perfectly
what is the problem
is there some sort of settings in the bios i must change?
BTW i am only 14 years old so i will not understand everything about the bios but im okay
thanks in advance
According to CPU-Z, how is it configured (Memory tab)? What SPD tables are available? According to Corsair: "Tested at the low latencies of (4-4-4-12) at 2.0V". Are you running them at 667 MHz with the correct voltage and latencies?
new 2 gig ram info is Part number
What do you mean? Are you trying to use one CM2X1024-5400C4 (667 MHz, 4-4-4-12 and 2.0V) module and one CM2x2048-6400C5 (800 MHz, 5-5-5-18 and 1.9V) module at the same time? If so, then you need to configure the RAM as per the CM2X1024-5400C4 specs and hope for the best. Unfortunately you didn't provide that important info in your original post.
So if you install a single 2 GB module, it won't boot at all? If so, then they either are defective, incompatible or your RAM settings are not on Auto. Reset all memory settings to Auto or reset the CMOS.
