P4P8X-SE Memory Issue
My specs: P4 2.8ghz Prescott, 2x512mb Elixir RAM, P4P8X-SE MB...
I recently bought 2x512mb of ram and added them with my current 2x256mb. No matter the combination of the slots I used, one pair of either ram would work, but if I used all four slots the computer would not boot up.
Both sets of ram are PC3200 400mhz 184pin.
From other forums I have received answers such as changing the voltage or memory timings in my BIOS, however these options are not available in my BIOS from startup, and I do not know exactly how to make these changes.
Im not too knowledgeable on the subject, but changing the voltage seems like a good way to mess up my computer. Any safe way of making these changes or alternatives would be helpful.
On the sticker, it has a line of numbers/letters then it has the the specifications of the RAM, then the bar code and under that it has a single line of numbers/letters.
my 2x512mb Elxir
my 2x256mb "Market RAM" (the Market sticker was put on by the store i bought it from, i think)
Please give all advice.
