Mobo only reads 1 dimm *PLEASE HELP*

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a Asus m4n75td mobo and 3 2gb crucial ballistix ram sticks. For some reason my mobo will only read dimm slot 1. I know the other 3 are working cause when I put the ram into them the LEDs light up. Please help me, I've posted this topic before but got no response. Any and all help is appreciated.

Take out 1 Dimm and run 2x 2GB Dimms in according slots and then see what the Bios says.

And obviously you would need 64Bit Windows to see 4GB or beyond, but the Bios is a different issue entirely.

After doing that my computer wouldn't power up. It just kept restarting after a few seconds of running. It will only launch with 1 dimm in.
