ram not recognized

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys

So i'm noob, and this is the first time i upgrade ram memory, i had 2x2 gigs of ddr3 ram at 1300 mhz, and now i took those out and replaced with 8 gigs of a single stick of transcend 2rx8 ddr3 1600 ram, problem is, the bios does not recognized that memory. In fact, i get the blue screen "A problem has been detected and windows has been shutdown...." so windows won't start.

Can't understand why, and btw i'm sure all 4 dimms are woking propely.

My mobo is a p7p55 lx, gpu gtx 560 ti and cpu i5 650 3.2ghz

Take a known working dimm and check each of the memory slots with it to see if one of the dimm slots is broken.
Then test each dimm on it's own in general to see if one of the dimms are broken.
Last of all, check your bios version. It may require an update.
