Sounds like module 2 could be on the way out, try increasing the memory voltage in the bios, this could help. Find out what the default memory voltage is then increase by minimul steps to see if it helps. hunter315 December 14, 2010 8:11:56 PM Thats a pretty obvious indication that stick two is your issue. Make sure your timings and voltages are set properly in BIOS, dont leave them on Auto set them manually. Once you do that, if it still wont boot up with stick 2 i would RMA it.
