My PC specifications:
Detalis From CPU-Z 1.72.1
Processor: Intel Core i5 750 @ 2.67GHz
Motherboard: P55A-UD3P by Gigabyte Techonology Co. Ltd.
Memory: Kingston 4GB (2x 2048 MB & 2x 4096MB) DDR3 | Dual Channel | NB Freq. 2131.7Mhz | DRAM Freq. 666.2MHz
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5770
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 (6.1) Ultimate Edition 64-bit
Possibly Relevant Information
PSU: Extreme Power Plus 500W (Product No. RS-500-PCAR-A3)
Casing: Cooler Master CM690
My attempts to rectify it:
- msconfig -> Boot tab -> Advanced options... -> Unchecked Maximum memory -> Restart
- Differ RAM sticks setup configuration (e.g. slots 1 and 3 changed 2GB to 4GB and likewise for slots 2 and 4)
To explain what I did for that: Turn off desktop, removed power cable, held power button for around 30s (to remove excess discharge), and plugged the sticks, plugged in cable, pressed power button. Did for each configuration.
- Issue persisted
- After first change (and the consequent changes and finally back to the original configuration) motherboard I think beeped (long beeps with intervals; beeped with every configuration).
Possibilities (if true, how do I go about in rectifying it/them?):
- Half of each RAM is used
- BIOS not updated
To note: I am sure that the RAMs are not damaged and were placed properly; images below for reference:
