newb ram question pls help :(

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. i have a
ASUS m3n78 motherboard and i got 2 x 2gb corsair XMS ddr2 ram sticks for it.

when i plug one of the sticks in. the pc wont boot and just stay on a black screen. i removed that stick and tried the other one and the pc boots just fine(actually using that stick right now) i turned off the pc and put in the other stick in the 2nd slot but the pc wont boot again with both on. i removed both again and tried again with the first stick alone still wont boot.tried the 2nd stick again alone and boots.

I'm new at this but could it be that the first stick is bad? or am i doing something wrong?

Sounds like a dead stick if it consistently exhibits non-boot while in the system but the system is fine with it removed.

Probably the first stick is not working.
