  1. Hello this is my first post here so if i've posted this in the wrong place i apologize

    I have a custom built pc running windows xp pro sp3 with an asus p5q deluxe motherboard with two 1 gig sticks of corsair xms2 memory 800mhz (installed in the yellow slots). This has ran fine for a couple of years, but has slowed down a bit when a lot of programs are open so i bought 2 more sticks of the same memory and installed them in the black memory slots and now the pc wont boot. It will boot fine with 2 sticks, but not 4. I have altered the voltage from 1.8 to 1.9v (which what it says on the sticker on the memory and the timings to that of the sticker 5-5-5-18, but no joy.
    I have also removed the old memory and put in the new memory in its place and it doesnt post with the new memory. The only difference i can see with the new memory is that its a different version no, but would this stop it from posting?

    Im now stuck as to what to do. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks very much
