I have one of those gigabyte motherboards. when I use two memory modules, the pc boots as it should. when i aad another two, I get continuos short beeps whhich I understand to be be a problem with the system memory. It doesn't matter what two modules I use first by the way. please advice
This is a common problem. The cause is that four modules place a greater capacitive load on the busses and reduces the effective speed of the memory chips. The solution is to increase the memory voltage in the BIOS. Sometimes this doesn’t work and you will need to reduce the memory timings as well.
