PC now works after taking out 1 RAM stick? Tags: Homebuilt RAM Systems Last response: September 12, 2012 12:28 AM in Systems Share bingaloman September 11, 2012 8:57:04 PM So at first I thought my mobo was dead cause I forgot the standoffs. So I went and reinstalled with the standoffs this time but still didn't boot. So I tried taking out one RAM stick.......and all of a sudden it boots with full energy and doesn't shut off. But does that mean I can never use that other RAM stick? Cause if not I'm only stuck with 4gb ram right now. And the ram I have is Crucial 8gb More about : works taking ram stick | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove zolton33 Homebuilt system Expert September 11, 2012 8:59:08 PM Your system specs could help a lot. | Report abuse PanicMaster85 Homebuilt system Authority September 11, 2012 11:33:19 PM you could always get the stick RMA'd and i guess that should fix it but it could be a dead bus so try the other 2 busses as well | Report abuse bingaloman September 11, 2012 11:42:47 PM Nvm problem solved guys, it was just my PSU was a DOA, got a spare and everything is good now thanks | Report abuse PanicMaster85 Homebuilt system Authority September 12, 2012 12:28:05 AM ok glad to help | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>PC now works after taking out 1 RAM stick?> Related ressources: ForumMotherboard will only work with 1 stick of ram ForumNew PC build worked fine for month, but now shuts down 1 second after Forum2 sticks of ram in dual and 1 stick in single?
