Fish Dilbert Posted December 13, 2004 Share Posted December 13, 2004 Greetings. Can anyone tell me why my new state of the art Abit AA8XE Fatal1ty motherboard will only run ONE of my matched memory pairs? I have tried all slot combinations: DIMM 1/3, DIMM 2/4, DIMM 1/2, DIMM 3/4 and the system will almost never boot. It seems that if I run one module in DIMM 1 it is stable. If I put the other module in, and take the other out of DIMM 1 it will not boot at all. (A bad module?) I have tried running in turbo and normal modes, and changed to 2:3 (600 Mhz.) and the problem persists. I am running win XP - SP2. I have recently updated the bios, but this is a new mobo (2 weeks on market). Corsair site says that this memory and mobo ARE compatable. Part No: TWIN2X1024-5400C4PRO PLEASE HELP! Do I RMA? Thanks in advance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
