my comp has run fine before on 4 gb ram(2X2GB) but now wont even post with on 2gb stick in. if i put 2 X 1gb sticks in posts and boots fine! brand new budget ram! and my older 2 sticks produce the same result
my prob isnt with the ram its all matching ram, i don't want to make the issue more than it needs to be! the issue is that the board used to run 2X2gb sticks in slots 1 & 3 as per gigabyte specs, one day it wouldn't boot so by process of elimination i swapped the ram out with 2X1GB sticks in the same slots and the same spec, computer booted fine, the old ram also worked in a mates computer fine. So my issue is the ram slots work, the ram works but all of a sudden the board wont recognise GB sticks is this a bios issue or does this happen after a while? Is my board on the way out?
