Sniss Posted January 25, 2013 Share Posted January 25, 2013 Hi there, I'm hoping to get some help about my recent RAM upgrade problem. I currently have 4GB (2x2Gb) XMS3s (model number in profile) which I recently decided to replace with a 16Gb (2x8Gb) CMX16GX3M2A1600C11 configured to 11-11-11-30 1.5v Motherboard claims to support 16gb and 16gb is showing in post screen however the system gets stuck at "Starting Windows" screen and goes no further. I've tried various BIOS settings including increasing the qpi (tried all settings from 1.25 up to 1.290). BIOS is on the most recent version (F11) Trying to run Memtest86 results in it crashing at various points, usually in the first 5-10 seconds. I've tried using 1 stick at a time and this results in the machine not getting past the post screen and just rebooting. Grateful for any suggestions, I had thought that as I replaced XMS3 with XMS3 it would be compatible but having checked the compatibility checker it only shows the 8Gb kit and not the 16Gb kit. Is this because it hasn't been updated or it's genuinely incompatible with the 16Gb XMS3. Many thanks, Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
