PinkFloyd08 Posted August 11, 2008 Share Posted August 11, 2008 Ram being used: XMS2 DHX DDR2 2gb sticks I'm currently trying to get 8 gigs of ram (4x2gb) to run. Right now I can get 6gb and under to run fine... when I try to put the final stick in to get 8gb. my system does not boot. the keyboard/mouse do not light up, and nothing shows up on the monitor (it acts as if it is sleep mode) I tried just booting off of that one stick (the one that make it hit 8gb) when I do that one stick by itself the system does the same thing, so im guessing there's something wrong with that stick? For some reason, I had 8gb working before without a problem. I went to transfer some files to an external HDD and walked away for while, i then came back to my computer to see I had a black screen, and could not boot without taking the 2gb of ram out. I ordered these two sets of RAM from Newegg. If it comes that I have to return it... do I just take the bad module and one of the other (good)ones and put them back in the package... or are the pairs linked together somehow? Reason I'm asking is I don't know what two go together. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
