Problems booting with 2x1GB memory


Recommended Posts

Just got all my parts from my order from newegg, spec is the following:

 

Motherboard: DFI LP UT nF4 SLI-D

Processsor: AMD Opteron 165 Denmark 1GHZ HT

Memory: 2x1GB OCZ Gold Series 1GB PC3200

Video: BFG 7900 GT OC

Hard Drive: Maxtor 100G 7200RPM SATA

Power Supply: OCZ Powestream 520W

 

Everything is running in default, i cleared the cmos once already.

 

 

 

Now the problem i'm having is if i put either memory stick in the motherboard, the pc will boot. However if i try to run both chips at the same time it wont boot and i get 3 LEDs on the motherboard diagnostic thing. I tried the 2 sticks in 1,3 and 2,4 as well.

4,3 and 2 lite up and it stays like that, wont boot, but it'll boot if one stick is in, either one.

 

Any ideas?

 

Hopefully i did this post right :O

Which model is your OCZ? OCZ512ELDCG-K is one for example. So it will only boot with either one only in single channel? Now have adjusted the timings and voltage and ran "MEMTEST86" from your bios "enabled" in "GENI MENU" to see which still is defective? Either you have one bad ram or you'll have to adjust the timings, clear the CMOS or connect all of your four power connectors. I hope this helps....

My guess is that it probably doesn't have anything to do with the memory. I just built a very similar system (see sig). Make sure you read this first:

Those 4 power connectors are VERY (read: very) important. Make sure all 4 of them of are connected and then try 1 stick in slot 2 (orange). If that works, clear CMOS again.
