Ok, so I'm building a PC.... which I have done about 5 times before.
The motherboard is a Intel BOXDG965WHMKR LGA 775 Intel G965.

The RAM is G.SKILL 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800.

Now, if you look at the specs, for whatever reason, the MB is particularly picky about the RAM you can put in it. It has to be 1.8V and have a timing of either 4-4-4 or 5-5-5. Ok, so I bought that RAM thinking I was ok, but I am having problems.
It says that it is Dual-Channel enabled, but that doesn't mean I HAVE to use it right? I only have 1 stick.... so I can't.
The problem is I get a 1 beep at post, which means DRAM refresh failure.
I get no video up on the screen whatsoever.
Am I just totally screwed, or what steps can I take to remedy this?
Thanks guys, in advance.
