I have Msi Fm2-a55-e33 board and only one ram slot works. The ram i am using is Corsair Vengeance 2 x 2gb sticks. Both work i've tried them on another system. Please Help!

  1. Sounds like a bad slot, do both work in the other slot? Have you checked CPU for bent/broken pins - that can throw the slot off

    No i havent. Both do work in that same slot.
  3. I'd check the CPU next for bent/broken pins
  4. Ok thanks. And if i find broken pins what should i do?
  5. Broken, not much you can do, if only bent, can generally take a pair of razor blades and straight them by placing one on either side and squeeze them together then doing same at a 90 degree angle
  6. Ok just looked at CPU no bent pins. So it has to be the motherboard. Is there any way i can fix the problem By Updating the bios?
  7. Give it a try
