  1. MSI K8N NEO Platinum- RAM problem- doesnt boot!!


    I have just bought MSI K8N NEO Platinum... With a single RAM in slot 1; it seems to be working OK, however whenever I tried to install two RAMS in slots 1&2 -or- 1&3, it does not even boot post!

    Now: RAMS are identical (2 256 MB kingston ddr400 RAMS) so it should not be a RAM incompatibility. Either of these RAMS- work fine. i.e. Machine runs successfully with a single RAM.

    I tried updating BIOS- but there is not a significant change. i.e. with dual RAM configuration; before updating the BIOS the motherboard gave a beep-beep sound and did not boot at all. After updating BIOS, it did some sort of boot, but froze again... (did not boot post)

    What do you think the problem might be?

    use memtest to test each stick thoroughly alone. could be a board problem or bad bios settings.

    ps> was your ram listed on the msi website as tested w/your board?
