Hello,im looking for anyone who might have had the same problem as im haveing atm i rebuilt my pc yesterday and it booted fine with 16 gig of ram and was showing 16 gig loaded at the same time i was also rebuilding my sons pc.His ram had a problem and would not boot so i took half of mine out and booted his and left it till i got some more this morning .When i went to reeboot mine with the whole 16 gig again it will not boot with all 4 sims if i remove one it will boot but only says 8 gig... I have tried diffident configs of ram and slots and they all seem to be fine only it wont boot with all four sims in the pc it just hangs with a red ram light and black screen i have also tryed to mem ok button on my board with no luck trying to get this in memory but couldn't get the option

Might be worth listing what motherboard, BIOS and memory you are using.
