Asus M2N-MX Motherboard 4gb Ram wont work


Asus M2N-MX Motherboard
AMD64 x2 4600+ Dual-Core Processor
500gb Harddrive.
Windows Vista 32bit

i recently decided to upgrade my RAM on my PC to 2 x 2GB ddr2 800 AData Ram. However when i insert both ram modules my PC wont load up, The mother board is supposed to accept up to 4gb RAM to my modules spec. I have tried all configurations of the ram channels. I have tested both modules on their own and all is ok. I tried to upgrade to 3gb with my old ram but again no joy, wont power up. Therefore i need help as to why i cant upgrade my RAM. Please help.

Many thanks

Re: Asus M2N-MX Motherboard 4gb Ram wont work

I had the same problem and ASUS tech support was of no help. I did however find the culpret in the BIOS setup. Go to Advanced, Chipset, NorthBridge Chipset, and Memory Configuration. Set the Bank Interleaving to Disabled and save the settings. Check these settings also while you are there:
Channel Interleaving = Auto
Enable clock to all DIMMS = Disabled
Memory Tristate = Disabled
Memory Hole = Enabled
Unganged Mode = Enabled
Power Down Enable = Enabled
Power Down Mode = Channel

M2n-mx se plus with amd64 5200 automatic shut down

it might be a bios problem. Check that your harddrive and cdrom are set correctly too. For example if your harddrive is set to master and your cdrom is set to slave, change the cdrom to master and harddrive to slave and see if this helps.

Asus motherboard M2N-E will not power up

It could be a memory card too. I would start by pulling the memory cards and see what happens.

Is there a connection on the motherboard for your hard drive?
