DFI Expert and Mushkin redline 4000 post issue

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all, it's been over a year from the last time I used this combo. I'm thinking this is some BIOS setting I've forgoten about. I can't get both of my 1gig XP-4000 stick to post together. They post by themselfs in slot 3 no problem. However when I populate slot one and three, I get the lovely ram post beep. Any ideas? TIA!

Do they boot by themselves in slot 1? Perhaps that slot is dead
Highly doubt that though....

Clear the CMOS, boot with 1 stick.. load the auto configs, install both sticks and boot it again...

If neither of those two work out, try memtesting each stick...

Also these sticks do best at 2.7-2.8 volts, and make sure base timings are at 3-3-2-8 try both 1t and 2t.

Pjlietz, have you tried slots 2 and 4? If I remember correctly slot 3 (orange) was mainly used for troubleshooting/testing (according to the manual)...but don't quote me on that I might be wrong
Double check the slots and make sure there is no debris in them. Blow them out if you can with some air (preferably canned air or an air compressor). Someone suggested this the other day to a user but you could also try the toothbrush and alcohol method. Apply some alcohol to a toothbrush and gently clean each slot.

Let us know

Hope that helps

Pjlietz, sounds great man. Is there any other problems at POST? Have you tried slots 1 and 3 again? Hopefully those slots aren't bad (1 and 3). Check out my previous post and try the alcohol tooth brush tactic. Perhaps maybe dust has gotten into one of those slots and the contacts need a cleaning

Good luck!
