It seems your slot A1 (yellow) might be faulty and to be sure you should try another stick of ram in it and do the MEMTEST to see if errors are found if yes do as you did and try it in another slot and if no errors then it is your slot that is the cause of your problem.

Here attach is the configuration of your motherboard for your ram and as you can see unless you want to use only one stick of ram there is no way for you to work around your slot A1 if you want to use more than one ram.

Asus P5Q memory.JPG

By using one ram only you cannot use your memory in Dual Channel which will make it work at a slower speed and you will have less memory so your computer will work slower overall.

As Rshaffer is pointing out it would be better to replace your motherboard since a faulty motherboard is never a good thing to use even if it seems to be working properly with not using your faulty slot. It might cause other problem to other parts in the long run.

As always Alzeimer a great post with precise instructions and explanations. :)
I'm sure the memory slot is gone and with the ASUS P5Q SE2 it seems to be a older mobo.

hi guys, I'am still on duty outside my town :yes:
can't do a test on A1 slot with my second RAM yet :unsure:
well, I bought my motherboard for like 1,5 years ago.
I wonder if I buy a new one, it'll be compatible with my current hardware :)

just curious, based on the instructions on the attachments, does it mean that I can't install 2 RAM on my black pair? (A2 and B2)

The only thing you will have to make sure is that your hard drive and cdrom drive will have the right connection for the motherboard. That being either SATA or IDE.

Unless you want to upgrade your processor you should take in account your current processor (LGA775) when you buy a new motherboard.
