I have Gigabyte G41M Combo Mobo rev 2.0 with Intel C2d E7400 2.8 Ghz processor and DDR2 Ram. This motherboard supports 1066/1333(O.C.) DDR3.
I bought G skill RipjawsX 1333 Mhz 1*4 Gb but couldn't make it work.
The G-Skill customer service said that Ripjaws series used one sided IC chips which might not work on older motherboards.
They adviced me to buy Value Ram series so I bought G-Skill 4 Gb DDR3 1333 Mhz Value ram which they said uses two sided IC Chips.
But it still doesn't work.
I reset the bios, load the defaults but still it won't work.
When I switch on the power, There is no display and no beeps but the mobo is working I can see the fan running.
And there are two people I know(online review) who are using the same ram on the same mobo and its working for them?
Yes I am installing it firmly in the right slot and not using DDR2 and DDR3 together.
What do I do? Anything I might be missing, anyone?
Help Urgent Need!
Thanks in Advance
