I've always kept matched chips in consecutive slots but I don't think it really matters if they are all the same type of RAM just different size. Hope this helps.

Alert! unsupported memory configuration. Please populate DIMM1


There should be 4 DIMM slots - two with white tabs and two with black tabs. DIMM 1 should be the white tabbed slot closest to the processor. Slots 1 and 3 (both white tabbed slots) should have RAM installed first, then slots 3 and 4 for additional RAM. If Slot 1 already has RAM in it, pull it out and push it back in to reseat it. If that doesn't work, replace the RAM in Slot 1.

Really? It should be in Slot 1. (DIMM 1)
A Processor reads Slot 1 first.

Scroll down to the larger photos of the motherboard.

Notice how the one Black ram memory slot is closer to the Processor?
That is Slot 1.

Keep the ram memory in the same color of ram memory slots.

Note*
IF you have the SAME ram memory modules ('Stick') in the Black slots, you will be running the ram memory in a dual channel configuration.

Same thing for the white ram memory slots.

Most generally the ram memory 'sticks' are bought from the same manufacturer, so as to guarantee they are indeed the same.

Same 'speed' (Frequency rate, actually)
Same voltage used
Same ram timings
Same chip configuration

Having the two LIKE ram memory modules installed in a dual channel configuration, allows them to team up on the task at hand.

Purported to speed up the ram memory functions greatly.
Up to 30 percent.

This has found out to be bullsticks.
The actual increase is more like 1 to 2 percent.
Nothing to write home to Mom about.

(Tom's Hardware used MANY different motherboards, ram memory, processors, and associated hardware, and tested different ram memory.
All came to the same conclusion. 1 to 2 percent increase.
Why do gamers use dual channel configuration?
1 to 2 percent increase. EVERY little bit helps)

I using a dual channel configuration for your motherboard, two LIKE ram memory modules are installed in Slots 1 and 3, (Black)

Have four LIKE ram memory modules? They go in Slots 2 and 4.
(White)

Unsupported memory configuration.please populate dimm1


open it up ..and see what is wrong with the first slot of ram memory ...if the inserted module is not working ...than remove it ..(to check if it works just leave it by itself and try to start the computer ..) anyway ..if there isn't any module in the first slot ..than move one from the last slot ..I mean mount the modules in slots from number 1 to ...as many you have available ...After finish ...restart ..press delete button right the way to go to bios settings ...and in here ..look for optimal factory default settings ..and engage them by selecting with arrows..and enter..and confirm with enter (Y)
to save settings before exit ..press F 10 ..and enter ..
This will assure the ram configuration ...in the correct way ..
Please read careful ..and ask if you do not understand something ...and also ..please rate my answer..cause it helps with my rating and activity on the site..

Instaling 2x1G ram. already have 1G and 512G sticks in place. beeping and no startup. wtf


remove the 512s and try again, try each stick one by one. make sure that your using the correct slots on the motherboard as module slots with differnt colors often mean that the modules in those slots need to be be the same spec, not nessesarly the same manufactur.

It is buillt in however if you have a spare PCI slot on the motherboard you could fit another ethernet card which would override the built in one.

Computer keeps cycling off and on


Load defaults on the bios screen, save and exit, reboot. see if it recognizes your newly installed ram. also if you have 4 memory slots, try using different configuration on the placement of the ram modules. Like if you have four memory slots trying, try using the first and 2nd slot, if no go then try using the 1st and 3rd slot and also remember to always load bios deafaults everytime you reconfigure the ram placement or size.
