    check sticks

    Did you purchase the 2 "upgrade sticks" together? If so, there should be documentation with them. If not, the chips on each stick will at least give the mfr., along with at least model #s. Go to mfrs' website, and compare those numbers to get the speeds of each pair. If each pair works separately from the other, it sounds like you have a compatibility issue between the memory sticks, not the mobo. :confused:
