Question about ASUS M2N-E SLi Motherboard
Hey folks my PC has the Asus M2N-E SLI motherboard and it has 4 RAM slots total. When I bought the PC, it has 2x 1GB Corsair CM2X1024-6400 memory modules. I just bought another 2GB(2x 1GB) of same brand and same type of Corsair CM2X1024-6400 modules and I experienced failure to boot when I have all four memory modules install; it won't even go past the BIOS screen.
So I tried to install 3GB instead of 4GB and it worked, I am pretty sure that all four modules are working because I've tried every single one of them and tested them with different combinations, they all worked fine with single/double/triple modules installed. Problem raises when I tried to install all four. The symptom is as the following: when I start up my PC, after about 10 seconds I hear a loud beep from my PC, the beep lasts for 2-3 seconds and the minitor stays black; it didn't even get to the BIOS screen.
I also tried to increase the memory voltage, in my BIOS I changed the DDR2 voltage to 1.95v, which is the highest available in my BIOS and that didn't solve the problem.
This problem is really driving me crazy lol I hope anyone around here can help me fix that? Thank you for reading this!
Tips for a great answer:
For dual-channel memory configuration (2), you may:
• install identical DIMMs in all four sockets OR
• install an identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (yellow
sockets) and another identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A2 and
DIMM_B2 (black sockets)
* Always use identical DDR2 DIMM pairs for dual-channel model. For
optimum compatibility, we recommend that you obtain memory modules
from the same vendor.
