Faulty RAM Stick?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I have 2X2GB RAM installed but only 2GB is showing up. Belarc Advisor and Crucial Scan read Dimm0 = 2048MB, Dimm1 = 16MB. I've swapped the 2 sticks over on the Mobo and the fault moves from Dimm1 to Dimm0. With just the one good stick installed in D0 the pc starts ok, but with just the faulty stick installed in D0 it fails POST.
I'm not sure if I can RMA just the RAM as this was a pre-built system (waiting to hear back from the supplier, Aria). If I have to return the whole system I'm thinking of just buying some new RAM but upgrading to 2X4GB.
Can anyone recommend a compatable 8GB kit for my Asus M4A78LT-M LE Mobo.

System specs HERE.

Why not look at the MFG's site: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD...A78LTM_LE/#MSL

They give you a list ready made. It's not comprehensive but it gives you a great place to start.

Thanks for the replies.
I have looked at the Mainboard compatability list but it doesn't list any 8GB kits (it's also 2 years old) which is why I'm looking for some advise.
These are the kits I've seen so far:

Corsair1333
GeiL 1333
Any

Any of these OK for my Mobo?
