jmacdonald801 Posted December 29, 2006 Posted December 29, 2006 I recently discarded an Asus A8N-SLI and purchased this Lanparty UT NF4 SLI -DR Expert board. I have been using two 1 GIG sticks of Patriot memorry in a dual channel configuration for some time on the Asus board but it refuses to work on the new DFI board. The memory model is PEP1G3200LL. It's low latency ram, for what it's worth. The problem is quite baffeling to me. It won't recognize the two sticks in either slots 1 and 3, or 2 and 4. However, it can recognize ONE stick, either one, in single channel mode in slot 2 only. So why not both sticks in dual channel mode??? The other odd thing is that I got a hold of and older DDR400 Corsair module and it "sometimes" works in slot 2. It works 1 out of 5 boot attemps. The bios gets as far as displaying the processor type but gets stuck right before the part where it displays the memory detected and jut hangs. Now the patriot ram doesn't do this when "one" stick is installed in slot 2, but it bluescreen windows or reboots during windows loading up. The 3rd piece of memory I tried was generic DDR400, I don't know what brand it is, it didn't have any heat spreaders or anything. That apparently worked in slot 2, at least as far as detecting the memory, I didn't actually boot windows with it. I don't know what to make of this... I've tried using default settings, everyhting set to auto, and that's only when I can get as far as getting into the bois. I'm wondering if this board is toast. How could it possibly be that problematic to detect ram? I also only currently have the video card installed, also did not install the audio module. Thought I would throw that in here before anyone asks me what sound card I'm using, because i'm not. I immediately removed everything I didn't need to try to get the system to boot. -James Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
