OK I just tested each of the sticks individually in each of the 4 memory slots and it doesn't work. When in slots 1 and 2 it just stayed at a black screen like before but when in slot 3 or 4 it would be a black screen as well as beeping continuously at me.
I currently have the CMOS battery out and when I get home from work I will put that back in, plug stuff back in, and try each stick of ram in each slot again. If that fails I am afraid I will have to RMA my nice new RAM
god this sucks. Not only do I not have a computer at home but I am also supposed to be building a website outside of work (at home) for this lady for $15 an hour and now I have no computer to do it with. *sigh*
I might be able to nab a 256 stick from a guy at work to test and see if my comp starts with that so that I will know for sure that it is the ram that is giving me issues. A single 256 stick of ram should be able to make my computer start and get into windows shouldn't it?
EDIT: also does anyone know if a single 256 stick of ram should be in slot 1 or slot 2 for the DFI Lanparty UT NF4 Ultra-D MOBO that is in my sig?
