System consists of asus M4A785TD-M EVO , PHENOM 2 945 , COOLMASTER 700W SILENT AND 6GB ON SAMSUNG DDR3 1333 OEM (FROM A CANABALIZED SYSTEM). System powers-up , but does not post. According to the beep codes , it is a failiure of 64k of memory. Now , i have 4 memory sticks (2/2gb , 2/1bg) and after trying each one individualy , none of them allow the system to post. Now , i can see one stick going bad but all four? Anyway, if this is not uncommon please let me know before i go and replace all of the ram. Any other advise would be appreciated.

"The first 64K of memory is tested with walking bit patterns. Failure is normally due to the first bank of ram or a data line"
If it's not the ram it indicates the mobo is the problem.

I recomend you update bios first:

You have 3 to choose from depending on your processor.

Is it possible that is is something wrong with the board itself or the DIMM's. I dont think he will be able to flash the BIOS without being able to POST. I would contact ASUS

first : clear the cmos
second : try again each of them, make sure to hear the 2 "clip" sound from the dimm so the dimm is correctly inserted
IF POST
run memtest+ on each of them.
IF NO POST
I was able to post with a faulty ram tho so it might be your motherboard. RMA your motherboard.

check if your 4 pin / 8 pin cpu cable is correctly inserted. Also check the 20+4 pins. Some motherboards looks like they have a 4 pin but there is a cap on the other 4, make sure to remove it and connect the 8 pins cable.

What's I'd do last would be try to remove your graphic card(if you have one) it might be the card causing the problem.

Good luck and keep us informed of your tests
