- When I install my RAM in slots 1 and 3, the computer won't POST.
- When I install my RAM in slots 2 and 4, it starts, and works fine.
- When I install my RAM in slots 1 and 4, it starts, and complains that I don't have the RAM in the right slots to use both channels.
I'm looking to upgrade my RAM. Should I be concerned that my motherboard is bad, since it won't POST with certain RAM configurations? The motherboard manual recommends using slots 2 and 4 if you're using two sticks. I was under the impression that this was just a recommendation, not a requirement. Is that correct?
My motherboard is a MSI Z370-a pro
