I have recently purchased 8gb of ram to replace the 4gb I have in my pc at the moment. I followed all instructions I could find, and I'm certain that the ram is compatible with my motherboard. However when I installed it, my computer boots ( lights on, fans working, ect ) however the monitor says that there is no signal. I have tried each stick individually in every port possible, and still no change. I have also tried removing the cmos battery due to suggestions on forums, and again, still no luck. I also read on other posts that most people have installed their ram from before, and have the same problem. However when I installed my old ram, my computer worked the same as before. If there is anymore information needed please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Did you run memtest?

Is it possible to run the memtest on the bad ram if I have no monitor?

Sounds like RAM incompatibility to me. Just because the computer turns on doesn't mean it gets past the POST (power on self test). Return the RAM and find something else.

Try this:

I've used Crucial with Biostar before on an AM2+ board.
