Alaskaguy Posted December 30, 2010 Share Posted December 30, 2010 Here is my issue I currently have been running the 4gb kit of Dominator-8500C5 and just bought a matching set to bump up to 8gb. But when I put all 4 sticks in my computer just continuously reboots and never makes it to the bios post screen. It however does startup with 3 sticks although slightly unstable. Here is what I have figured out so far. All my dimm slots are working I know this because I orginally had a stick in dimm slot 2 and dimm slot 4 and I tested the new sticks of ram in dimm slots 1 and 3. The computer will boot up fine with the 2 brand new sticks so the ram is good also. Now I vaguely recall I had to tinker with memory settings in the bios to get 2 sticks to run stable but that was over a year ago. And from what I can kind of gather is possibly I have to slow my 1066 ram down to 800 in order to run 8gb? If so I am not entirely sure how to do that but I know I can do it if someone can walk me through it (would rather figure out how to run it at 1066). I have not overclocked this system beyond whatever small changes over a year ago to get the ram stable the first time. I appreciate any help I can get.
