I originally put 6g of Corsair XMS3 DDR3 pc3 1600mhz RAM in it but it was no longer enough for me. I went out today and bought a Patriot 12g Gseries DDR3 pc3-10666 1333mhz. I originally put the corsair ram in the orange slots so i took them out and put the patriot ram in the black slots.
Now my pc will startup all my peripherals except my monitor come on, but no post into the OS.
Any idea why this is happening and how can I fix it?
GeekApproved, sorry i forgot to answer your question. Although I built my PC myself, I have very little experience troubleshooting hardware problems. Due to my lack of experience i figured I should try using the other set of slots to see if it would work. Before this thread I knew nothing about clearing CMOS etc..
Anyway, as of now i have 2/3 of the new sticks in and my pc runs fine but i still need to get the other 4gb to work. Before i went to work today I located the CLRTC on my mobo but I dont know how to move the pins.
Oh ok cool. What does the jumper look like? I found the writing that says CLRTC but I dont know which piece near that is the actual jumper.Sorry for the noobish questions, mobos arent exactly my specialty. And i searched google for a pic of the jumper but had no luck
