System will not post will all 8 gigs of RAM installed...


Recommended Posts

I am having an issue I think, but I am not really sure what is up.


Whenever I try an put all 4 sticks of 2gb RAM in the machine it will not POST.


It will however post with just 2 sticks installed.


I have tried both pair independently and they all seem to work. There may be some compatibility issue causing this I am not aware of.


Thanks again everyone.


Edit: I am sorry I seem to have posted this in the wring section.

Incase the OP comes back, you have some problems.


1. Vista 32bit will only see 3GB maximum. 64bit OS's will see over 3GB


2. In the BIOS look for a setting among the chipset settings, usually Northbridge, and if the option is disabled and there - enable memory hole, this will allow the board to see more than the 3GB but as said your Vista will not :\
