marthpodi Posted December 31, 2010 Share Posted December 31, 2010 I've been running my system Biostar TForce 6100 AM2 Athlon 64 X2 3600+ 2GB CM2X1024-6400 (2x 1GB) I wanted to add 2 more GB RAM (want to upgrade to Win 7 x64) so I ordered another TWIN2X2048-6400. I notice that my old RAM is 5-5-5-12 and the new RAM is 5-5-5-18. I can run either set of 2gb but when I add all 4 sticks, the computer won't boot at all. I know that different memory settings are recommended for 4x sticks of RAM, but I'm not sure what setting to use. I realize 2x 2GB sticks would be better, but my motherboard manual mentions that it cannot accept RAM more than 1GB per slot. If I need to change RAM settings in the BIOS, can I do that with only 2 GB installed?- as I can't even get to the bios settings with all 4 sticks in. What should I do?
