Gigabyte GA-M61SME-S2 and TWIN2x2048-6400 troubles


Recommended Posts

Hello, and sorry to bother you all. I am trying to build 3 computers for work.


They consist of the following:


Gigabyte GA-M61SME-S2 AMD Socket AM2 Motherboard.

AMD AM2 5000+ Dual Core Processor

Corsair XMS2 DDR2 TWIN2x2048-6400 memory, the 2x1GB matched pair


1 out of the 3 has been successful in POST'ing and being able to load Windows.


The other 2, the motherboard are working, as when I remove both sticks of memory, the board emits the series of beeps to indicate there is no memory.


If I have one memory stick installed in slot 2, the board will usually POST. If I have one memory stick in slot 1, the board usually does NOT POST, but I have had it POST once. I just received a new motherboard of the same kind and the same Corsair memory, and it does the same thing, if I have 2 memory sticks installed, nothing, memory in slot 1, nothing, yet slot 2 will usually work 8 out of 10 times I'd say.


Yet the weird thing is I have one system I built that exhibited none of these issues, fired right up with both memory sticks the first time, and Windows is up and running fine.


Any clue as what I can try??


Thanks for your time.

With the MB that is working please test the other modules one at a time and make sure one is not failing. If the modules all work in the other system then there is some other problem with the other systems and I would use the working system to test the CPU's and then the Video Cards and go from there.
