Hi, I recently built my computer and wanted to add more rams to it but I'm having some trouble.

Motherboard: ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO
RAM: CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

I have 4 ram slots on my motherboard. I originally had 2gbs in slot 1 and 3 each. I bought 2more 2gb ram (same brand everything!) and added it in slot 2 and 4 and then my computer does not boot!

So I tried to do the single ram test and try each slot. The computer only boots and makes a beeping noise in slots 1 and 3. Slot 2 and 4 does not boot.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there a setting I have to change? Please help! Thanks!

The fact that 2 and 4 don't boot with even a single dimm is a problem. Try resetting the bios: remove the BIOS battery for 60 seconds, then put it back in. If that doesn't work, I recommend getting an RMA from Asus and having them fix or replace the board (if its too late to return it to the retailer).
