Tirebiter Posted November 10, 2006 Share Posted November 10, 2006 I have ended up at this forum in hopes of solving my problems with my new ASUS P5W DH and my second pair of CM2X1024-6400's. Symtoms started about 2 weeks after assembling the new system....random crashes that escalated to imediate freeze up at bios post. Suspecting memory, I switched sticks between slots and without any improvement, pulled the stick from B1. Voila, we have post and full boot. Switching sticks and leaving B1 empty I found that the machine would again fail to post. Reasoning a bad memory stick, I hoofed it on over to my outlet to make the exchange for a new pair. With that done and new memory installed, I even buttoned the case up, confident that my problems were solved.....sadly not so. Basically the same issue, the machine will boot up fine on one of the sticks, but not the second (and of course, not with both installed). Searching for a possible cause, I found this forum and have performed the bios mods suggested, but still no joy with the second stick..... What are the chances that I had two bad sticks???...seems slim to me. Is it because I booted up with bios in auto mode...bad motherboard?? Any help appreciated...
