Hi just swapped out my old deil one 1Gb for some G skill 2 Gb RAm. Went to clear the CMOS and realised that it was already set on what the manueal said was the clear CMOS position.
After swapping it over for 10 seconds (i assumed it was right) It booted to the boot screen and said press F1 to continue or del to enter setup. entered setup loaded optimised settings and it wouldn't boot from then on. I restted CMOS again, and again it would post but on loading optimised settings no boot.
So i thought maybe the Jumper position was just set wrong when i got my mobo and tried it the other way around again after loading optimised settngs it does not boot.
So the last time i did this i just pressed F1. Loads into windows. CPU Z sees my RAM but has my San diago 4000+ running at 2300Mhz instead of 2400Mhz. If i switch off i have to reset the CMOS again and press F1 to get into windows.
So two questions really what the hell is wrong with this. And for a Lan party SLI-DR is the normal position the top 2 pins or the bottom 2 pins?
Also i first ran my geail memory in the red slots but have my 2Gb in the yellow slots. Is that a problem?
Do i need to update bios to run 2Gb?
