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..

Use the first slot/port for RAM, if you have two RAMs use 3rd for the second RAM, DIMM stands for Dual Inline Memnory Module, and DIMM1 is the first slot, your error mesage is saying to use the 1st slot for the memory, there are usually 4 slots, 1st and 3rd is DIMM1

My computer is saying unsupported memory configuration please POPULATION DIMM1

The memory in DIMM1 is either missing or the wrong kind. Yes, the motherboard manual or the shop where you bought it should know what to put there. Also, the DIMM1 might not be properly installed or fastened. The arms on each end must click towards the DIMM

Alert ! unsupported memory configuration please p;pulate DIMM1

If the computer was working well and this error popped up, then the most likely issue is a bad memory module, most likely in the DIMM1 slot. If this occurred as a result of a new build or an upgrade, then there are other possibilities. Mainboards are particular in many cases where memory modules can be installed and in what groupings/types/speeds can be mixed and matched. The problem could be as simple as removing and re-seating the memory module in the DIMM1 slot (the slots are usually marked on the mainboard). If there are multiple memory cards installed, try rearranging them, or even removing all but one at a time to try to determine if there are any bad ones. If you are using one at a time, they usually have to be installed in the DIMM1 slot (but not all mainboards require this). After you determine if there is bad memory and which one is bad, you can either replace the bad module, or operate the unit with the remaining good modules, although performance may suffer slightly. The last possibility, and the worst one, is that the the DIMM1 slot on the mainboard is bad. If that is the case, and if you cannot operate without a DIMM in slot 1, you will need a new mainboard or new PC.

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.
