System will only boot with 1 RAM stick in slot 1


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I am using a GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD4P LGA 1366 Motherboard and CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) TR3X6G1600C8D RAM.




I can only boot my system with 1 stick in ddr3 slot 1 of my motherboard. When I try to add another stick in slot 3 or slot 5, the system won't POST and the LED lights on my motherboard turn red. Right when I turn it on, the CPU fan would spin for a few seconds then the system would shut itself off and turn back on in a few seconds. I tried swapping out the ram sticks with all 3 sticks in slot 1 and it worked. So I'm guessing it's the motherboard or the BIOS settings. I tried messing around with the default bios settings for RAM frequencies but it still would not boot with more than 1 stick of ram. Any help would be appreciated...
