Hey guys, new to the forum. I just built my first computer, here are the specs...

Asus M4A89GTD Pro/USB3
AMD Athlon II X4 640 Propus 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor ADX640WFGMBOX
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL
Two 500GB Sata Hard drives
Antec 300 Case and 430 Watt Power Supply.

When I finished installing everything I powered it up, but had no signal to the display. So I thought, ok lets turn it off and try again, I did that and it would not boot up, only the fans would turn a bit and stop. The light was green on my mobo, so I checked all connections. I lasted a day just re-checking connections and nothing would work. Until I saw a post where someone said he can onyl use one stick of Gskill ripjaw, so I tried that, and it worked! So I installed everything on my computer, and now I'm trying to solve this problem. Right now I'm using both sticks of ram and shows up on my computer that its installed, but if I power off the computer the only way too boot it back up is too hold the MEMOK button. Any suggestions? It works fine with only 1 stick of ram.

Do you have the exact model number on that G Skill RAM and what is your RAM voltage set for now?

Yes check your RAM voltage in BIOS.
I see you said you have G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 but there are different modle numbers with different timmings and voltage please check your receipt.

I ran two tests on one of my sticks and passed both with no problems, I'm going to try the other one next!
