What's your computer setup? Do you have a dedicated graphics card?

We need more info:

- You say both RAM sticks are good because you tested them. How did you test them?
- You say the PC works with one stick of RAM. Does it work with just the other stick of RAM?
- You say you set 'my volts to .2" Huh?

If you can boot the PC with either stick of memory . . .

With one stick of memory installed, clear CMOS** and reload factory defaults*** in BIOS and try again with 2 sticks..

** Pull plug from wall, remove battery from mobo, press the case power switch several times (to drain the psu), wait 5 minutes, put the battery back in, put plug into wall, power up and go straight to BIOS setup.

*** Load factory defaults, save, and exit BIOS. Boot up into Windows, then shut down. Install the second stick of memory and reboot.

i test them by testing those rams one at a time. the monitor would recieve signal if i use one stick. if i put 2 than the monitor will not turn on. its 2.0 votage. i have tried loading my bios everything to default, and i also try to reset the bios by removing the battery from the motherboard. still nothing. is this a common problem? i tried looking everywhere but i cant seem to find a solution.

I should have asked earlier - is this a new build?

Is the 4-pin power connector plugged into the mobo?

Are the psu, mobo, or memory all new?

Did these 2 sticks of RAM ever work in this mobo? Did they ever work in any PC?
