|So I decided to replace my current Mushkin 996659ES 2x2GB RAM with some newer and more powerful RAM.|
I bought the Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 2x4GB RAM and put it in where the Mushkin previously was. Now, when starting my PC, the computer won't even get to POST, let alone give me an error message.
My motherboard is an ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO, which as far as I can tell SHOULD be fully capable of accepting the new RAM.
I have tried resetting CMOS using the jumper and also by removing the battery.
I have tried using the other RAM slots, no change.
I have tried using ONE of the new RAM (tried this with both, individually) in case one was faulty, but same result. If I put the Mushkin back in, no problem again...
Any suggestions? I am a bit bemused by this, and perhaps am missing something very simple?
