2 Ram slots not working on my gigabyte board.

I have a Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P board and 2 out of the 4 ram slots work. Slots 1 and 3 work and 2 and 4 don't. I know it's not the ram because I can switch the stick into the working slots and it boots into windows. When I put the ram into the problem slots it doesn't even show the post screen it just sits there, I guess turning on and off I can tell this because of my graphics cards fan. I reset my cmos and left my computer unplugged overnight but it still has the problem.

  1. Put it to 1+2 and check if it works, and than 3+4.

    In your manual, it shows to use 1+2 or 3+4
  2. Page 16, sec 1-4.
  3. I tried that, if any ram stick is in slot 2 or 4 it wont boot

    Than I'd say it is probably out of commission.
  5. So you think I'm stuck with 2 slots?

  10. Same with my ASUS P5Q Pro Board, except if i put anything into ram slots 3 or 4 i will get a blue screen of death after 10 minutes of playing a game or anything ram intensive.
