  1. Best answer
    Might try with a single stick of DRAM in slot 1
  2. It did work when I only had 1 stick of DRAM in, Thanks!
  3. Once loaded should be able to add the second stick and be good to go, if any problem, raise the DRAM voltage + 0.05
  4. Now I am having an issue where the 6gbps sata ports wont show the SSD in the MoBo BIOS boot menu, I have updated the BIOS to the most current but still having the same issue...do i need to turn on the ports in the BIOS somewhere?
  5. Check that you have the latest BIOS, and in the BIOS check that the HD type is set for AHCI
