I have just bought 4 gig of Corsair Dominator ram DDR2 [CM2X2048-8500C5D] 1066MHz.
When I put both sticks in my computer it will not post.Well not all of the time.It has couple of times??.
I took the ram back to the shop and they tested it on there machine all good.

If I remove one stick [I will call it stick B] the computer will post and run.
If I swap it for stick B it will not.
The ram is compatible with the MoBo as far as I can tell from both Asus and Corsair web sites.

I have flashed the bios and all setting are on auto. [nothing is over clocked]
Mother board is a Asus P5Q.
CPU intel quad core.
Windows7 64 bit.

My old ram is also Corsair XMS 800MHz 4 gig.

I have Binged the problem but can find no answers.
There is a post on the Corsair forum about the problem but no answer I can find.

Thanks in advance.

If one stick post the other doesn't I would suspect a bad chip. If the shop tested them and their ok then they shouldn't have a problem exchanging them for you :thumbsup: .
