Botwin Posted October 4, 2010 Share Posted October 4, 2010 Ok, so my issue is that the computer won't POST with both sticks of memory in, only if 1 stick is in. I've also done the startup with each individual stick to make sure neither was broken. My computer used to work fine then I tried to fix an unrelated issue and this is what happened: 1. Updated BIOS to fix the unrelated issue which was a slow startup compatibility issue between my GPU and motherboard. 2. Upon update computer would not POST at all. 3. Followed the solutions I found for that issue which was to hard clear the CMOS. 4. Computer finally POSTed so I went into the BIOS and manually set the RAM timings which I got from these forums (http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=64974): 2.1V 5-5-5-15 5. Computer will startup and run ok with 1 memory stick in but won't start at all with both in. I realize that this is most likely a motherboard issue I was just looking to see if anyone from these forums can suggest a solution or differant BIOS settings that would allow the computer to run with both sticks like it did before I updated the BIOS.
