comment IE8 Unable to download files
I verified that the attribute settings are correct. I can browse the web just fine. It's only when I try to download a file.

Well, I tried re-seating everything a couple of times but that didn't work. So, I then tried powering on using the NVidia card with no power supply connection to it. That worked and the system POSTed correctly, but the card was running in reduced performance mode, of course. So, I then re-connected the power supply to the video card and have had no trouble in 5 days.

I've only had time to do one of the four sticks so far. I gave it time for three passes and it was OK for each one. The reason I'm leaning away from the memory is that changing video cards seemed to make the difference. With the ATI card, it posts just fine. With the NVidia card (which requires power), it does not post. Somehow, this seems to affect the amount of RAM detected by the BIOS as well.

I'll work on testing the memory this weekend. Out of curiosity, does the fact that having only two sticks in, no matter what combination, shows up as 2Gb, but having four sticks in only shows up as 2.4Gb mean something could be wrong with the Mobo, like the ram slots themselves? I also read a suggestion on another site that the power supply could be under-volting the RAM. How likely is this?
