I hope a computer expert can help me out with this.
I currently have this motherboard: Asus P5E3_Premium WiFi AP_n and I have 2GB (2 x 1GB modules) installed in there already : Corsair-XMS3-DHX-DDR3-1333
I have purchased 2 x 4GB kit of these: GeIL Enhance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1333MHz PC3 10660 DDR3 Memory Module
When I installed the additional memory the computer doesnt do anything. Not even a BIOS screen. When I take out the new memory it works fine.
Im sure the old and new RAM stick are similar in spec. Can anyone think of a reason why this wouldnt work or am I just unlucky and received a pair of non working RAM sticks?
Thanks for your help!
Took out the old sticks and put the new sticks in their place. put the new sticks in the other 2 channels put in each stick 1 by 1 i know all 4 channels works because I have tried all 4 channels with old sticks.
Ive reset the bios to defaults too.
Cant think of anything else to try. As far as I am aware, it should all just work. Even though the motherboard says it only supports 8GB max (4 x 2GB sticks) I have read that people have put in 4GB sticks in with no issues.
i have tried with just 1 of the new 4gb sticks and 2 of them making it a max of 8GB
