Patriot RAM Problem
Hi. First post, so please go easy on me!
I'm assuming my system details will show alongside my post, so apologise if you're reading this twice: Q6600, Asus P5KPL, Geforce 8600GT, 4x1Gb Patriot PC2-6400 C4 Extreme Performance.
Right, my problem. This is probably simple and I am probably just being dim! I have four slots on the Mobo for RAM, two sets of two. I'll call these 1&2 and 3&4 (sorry but I'm new to this!). If I have one stick of RAM in either 1 or 2, and one in either 3 or 4, the system boots fine. However, if I put them together, so in 1&2 or 3&4, the system just beeps loudly at me and refuses to boot. Obviously my aim would be to run with a 1gig stick in each of the four slots. Am I doing something completely wrongly, or is there a setting I need to change (in the BIOS maybe)? As a complete novice, I'm wondering if it could be a voltage issue?
Thanks for any help you can offer, it's driving me mad!
