  1. I bought a new mothorboard GIGBYTE. got two 1GB of RAM.
    theres4 ram slots BLUE RED BLUE RED.
    the ram should work better when put into the same slots right? like BLUE and BLUE. When i do this the monitor doesnt come on at all but works when i do BLUE RED.

    ive tried every combination an even different ram.
    it also works if i just put in one ram stick.
    its DDR2 7200

    anybody any ideas whats causing it?
    my graphics card is a raedon 256 i think

    Where exactly are the slots? on the Mother board? It sounds like you should just stick with the red/blue slots for now; The other slots sound like they're internal PCI slots or something, something that will interfere with your graphics card.

    If the monitor's working, keep it that way! are you just trying to figure out why? or are you trying to get it to work?

    yeah there definitly ram slots.
    was just wondering why cause it says to use the same colour slots if your only using 2 sticks on the booklet i got with it i got with it.
    guess ill just stick to the different colours so.
    thanks for the reply.
