kong Posted December 7, 2005 Posted December 7, 2005 Hello all, This is my first DFI board and my second time building my own system, so I still have a lot to learn. Anyways, I had some issues getting the system running and ended up spending a few days reformating and such. First problem: I had my Corsair 3200C2PRO 2x1024 sticks in the yellow slots to begin with. Well it worked, but I would end up getting random lock-ups on desktop, not to mention all of my games would result in a freaky screaching crash (sound card). Solution for first problem: Removed my 3200C2PRO 2x1024 sticks, and put in my 3200XLPRO 2x512 sticks in the orange slots this time. Well this hasn't given me any problems whatsoever. I was able to play BF2 without any problems and I havn't experienced any freezing. Where I stand now: Well I would like to be able to use my other sticks of Memory giving me 3gig's instead of 1gig. However, when I put the 2x1024 sticks in the two yellow slots, Windows nor my Motherboard will read/recognize it. It still runs fine, but the extra memory is not working. Just some things I have done: -Tried adjusting the DRAM Frequency to 166 and then 250 or whatever the 1:1 ratio was. Didn't work. -Switching the 4 sticks around from the yellow to the orange slots and visa versa. This didn't work, it didn't boot to windows. -Updated the BIOS to PCB Revision A (NF4EDB02). I havn't tried: -Putting the 2x512's (by themselves) in the yellow slots. -Putting the 2x1024's (by themselves) in the orange slots. So what I need help with is getting all of my memory to run, if this is at all possible? I did have all 4 sticks working fine on my old P4 system so I am positive my memory is good. Any help would be greatly appreaciated, thanks. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
