now i had a problem with my computer not booting up and so i took my cpu to a pro shop to get fix. Now he calls me days later say my ram wasn't compatible so i had four sticks, he took out two so i brought new ram and the computer started to do the same thing. so then it hit me why is it that these two are the only ones working so i took those two out and put two others in the other two slots dont work. so i leave one on one side and put one back where it came from it comes on wow right...so i got to look at the ram and its only recognizing one stick of ram saying its a 1g ram so i put both of them back now it says i have 2 gbs i need to figure this out because sims 3 takes alot of memory.

what type and brand are the memory sticks you are using? Your motherboard can handle up to 8 gig of DDR2 800 / PC2-6400 so it is fairly specific as to the type that you can use, basically the same as my older ASUS board.

specs for the ASUS P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe

Dual channel memory architecture
4 x 240-pin DIMM sockets support max. 8GB DDR2 800/667/533 non-ECC memory
Refer to www.asus.com or user manual for "Memory QVL (Qualify Vendor List)"


I checked the memory list that is approved by ASUS, the board should be able to accept 533mhz (p2-4200) but all the specs they specify 800mhz (pc2-6400) and the brand is listed as being approved so it shouldn't be an issue of brand wars.. It may be the motherboard is having issues, or the ram itself is having issues.

When your populating the memory and the computer works what slots are you using? Both yellow or both black? You are only populating 2 dimms so you should be using the yellow A1 and A2 slots.


Edit: Whats the model number of the memory?
