I have a custom built machine that I built myself. I had memory_management 0x0000001A bluescreen errors sporadically. After reinstalling Windows and trying everything else I could think of, I decided to send my Asus motherboard in to have it checked out. Asus said everything was fine with it. So, I sent out my 8GB (4x2GB) of DDR3 RAM to Corsair. Corsair only sent me back 3 sticks and claimed I didn't send them 4... Anyways, what happens now is that my bios and Windows 7 Pro 64-bit will only recognize 2GB of RAM when I install 2 2GB sticks. When I try to install the 3rd 2GB stick, sometimes it will make it to the bios and display 4GB (even though there is 6GB of physical memory installed) and sometimes nothing will come on the screen. I am exceptionally frustrated. I don't know if Asus messed up or Corsair or what is going on. I've tried switching the sticks around to different slots; I've tried the MemOK! button on the motherboard, which offers no help, and I've set bios settings to default and have also read through my motherboard manual to see if there is something I'm missing. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
