Help computer wont boot

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I left for two days without powering down my computer and now It will load to the asus express gate screen and then freezes. And ideas on how to narrow down the problem? I have cleared the cmos and had no luck. I have unplugged all but the monitor and keyboard and mouse. Any tips or advice to narrow the problem down would be greatly be appreciated.

Finally figured it out. I lost a stick of memory. I have found the same memory on new egg but its sold in 4gb kits. If I get another 4 gb kit can I install it as well as the one 2gb stick I have left or will it not work that way?

Glad you got it figured out smile.gif.

You can run ram in odd configurations like that, and it will totally work. I am doing the same thing on my file server right now (one DIMM slot is bad, so only 3 are populated). The ram will not be able to run in dual channel mode, but the total amount will still show up IIRC. So the overall performance of the ram will likely be lower, but the amount will be larger, and it could improve the overall performance of your machine if you're needing those extra 2GB.

So the upside, is that you can do whatever you want.

Good luck smile.gif.
