Here is whats going on, hope you can help...
I have a relatively new PC that has been working great: Asus p7p55d LE motherboard, Intel core i7 860 CPU and 2gb of Patriot DDR3 1600 MHz memory.Running Windows 7 64bit
Then someone bought me 4GB Extra Ram( Corsair dominator 4GB DDR3 1600mhz 2x2GB ) yesterday.
So I tried putting in all 6GB(3 DIMMS) of ram but no success. The PC won’t boot. Nothing happens except all the fans are running and the asus “MEMOK” light keeps burning.
So I tried holding the “memok” button but that also did not work. It just went through all the tests.
So I took out the old patriot memory and placed the 2 Corsair DIMMS in the A1 and B1 slots. I started the PC and it got stuck at the windows logo while loading windows. But after a few times of resetting and swapping DIMMS I got it to fully go into windows with that same configuration. But now the problem is that when I right click on the my computer icon->Properties it only shows 2GB of memory?
Is there any way of using all 6GB of memory, or at least 4GB? Please help.
