|Just upgraded my comp with two 2GB sticks of DDR2 800MHZ, and with the old ram it will not post.|
I was running 4gb of ram prior, at 4 1gb sticks, two at 800mhz, two at 667mhz. I was hoping to keep the two sticks of 800mhz and just have a solid upgrade to 6gb @ 800mhz.
However, if I have any sticks of old ram in the slots, it won't post. It will still post with the old ram, and it will post with just the new ram. So I'm a bit in a confusion as to what's causing this. I reset the BIOS in an attempt to clear out some old crap that may have caused a compatability issue, but no luck there either
MB = ASUS M3N78-VM
CPU = AMD Phenom X2 550
Old ram = 1gb of Crucial Balistix and 1gb of Patriot
New ram = 4gb of PNY
