Question about Intel DG965RY Motherboard
Thank you "The only-sol" for going through my problem.
Well, my Mobo is Intel DG965RY which has 4 DIMM slots, two of which are Slot A and other two are slot B. So my mobo does support more than 3 DDR2. Intel recommends to fill up both channels (0 and 1) of Slot A first and then go for slot B. I have 3 nos. of 512MB DDR2. So I fill up both channels of Slot A and then installed one 512MB DDR2 in Slot B channel 0. All DDR2 RAM are of same spec. However, during cold boot, if I press the start button immediately after POST procedure, there is beep sounds indicating some kind of error and there is no display. However if I allow some 10 seconds after POST, then the computer boots.
The other problem is I can not restart my computer. It simply whizzes and buzzes with CPU fan running at top speed but it simply does not reboot even though there seem to be lots of processing going on.
Really strange problem. Maybe designer of this Mobo can throw some light on it. Thanks in advance.
1. Remove the 1 Ram module from Slot B Channel 0.
2. See if problem is still there.
3. If not get another Ram module of same spec to fill up all 4 channels.
4 If error still there swap the removed Ram module with one of the Ram modules still installed. One of them might be faulty.
