Can't Get Past BIOS Screen with 4GB RAM


Recommended Posts



First off, here are my system specs:


Asus P5N32-E SLI

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400

EVGA 8800GTS 512MB

3x1GB Corsair corsair DDR2 XMS2 RAM

Windows Vista x64


When I try adding a 4th stick of RAM, the PC sits at the BIOS "A.I. Lifestyle" screen. I have no idea why.


Any ideas?

With 4 modules I would suggest setting the memory frequency at DDR667 and set the memory Voltage to 2.0 Volts and set the NB/MCH/SPP Voltage to +.2 Volts as well and test the system with http://www.memtest.org. In addition, with some MB's (Mostly ASUS) you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.
