New G Skill RAM

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
ok so I've been running this system on my Corsair 1GB RAM for over the last year and I finally got a 4GB kit today and maybe I'm a noob at this kind of stuff but I thought I could just turn off my computer and pull out the old stick and put in the new sticks and turn my comp back on and it should work. Well when I did that I keep getting a series of beeps and nothing shows up on the monitor and I tried a bunch of different things and it seems like the only thing that has made ONE of the sticks of new RAM work was when I unplugged EVERY power cable in the computer. The main 24pin, the cpu power, all the cables to the PSU and the power plug that goes into the back. And when doing that, I can get 1 stick to boot and run fine (its running now) but I turned off the comp and put in the other one and I got the beeps again. Am I doing something wrong? I thought this would be something easy to do.

If it runs with one stick but you swap sticks and it won't boot then you have a bad stick of ram.

Try resetting the Bios...also one of your new sticks could be bad...try them all one stick at a time and see if one gives you that same error....

I think resetting the bios will work for you though so try that first...just take the battery out for a few mins and pop it back in.

looks like a bad stick, try installing one at a time, then RMA it. shame its on g.skill too. ive bought 8 sticks of ram, 4 on laptops and 4 on desktops, all work fine and dandy, lucky me i guess, but you can really count on it.

yeah don't get too hard down on Gskill I love mine as well Sometimes bad sticks get sent out...thats the nature of the beast with ram though...its pretty "mass produced" so a bad stick is normal....however it will be replaced for you free of charge and I bet an apology comes with it....if you bought them from newegg I would hit up the "OCN newegg rep", he is a super cool guy and will fix your problem for you!

Well I got both sticks working good now

I basically completely took my computer apart and rebuilt it from "scratch" and booted it up and it worked. Oh well it needed to be cleaned out anyways

RAM does weird stuff sometimes.
Sometimes 1 stick does not want to work in a certian slot, but works fine in another.
Glad you got it working, but I would still run Memtest on it for a few hours to make sure it is good.

your cmos is directing your Cas and Ras number for you old ram. Unplug for 30 seconds then post into your bios. go to your memory config and make sure your running on auto or change to the settings for your new ram. Then, one at a time, put in your ram. Match the colors on the mobo. fill the two blue slots first. then the second two.
