I have a ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Motherboard that is telling me it is failing the system memory test and refusing to boot. I have already tried reseating the memory, clearing the BIOS and changing the power supply. Can anyone tell me if I can swap the memory from my working ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Motherboard to test if it really is memory causing the problem. Or if anyone has any other suggestions I would be most grateful.

I would go ahead and try swapping them and seeing if that helps.

You should be able to swap them straight across and test with that.

I'd suggest, take both the sticks out of the problem motherboard, and run only 1 stick from your known working motherboard.
Be sure to mark the 'working' sticks in some way beforehand, or if they're different brands that will be just as handy.

If your m/b then boots windows you know you possibly have 1 or 2 bad sticks.
If it boots, stick only 1 'bad' stick back in, failing that to work, try the other.
By chance you have a failed stick, which will halt the entire system, therefore if 1 works, and 1 doesn't, you have a dead stick.

At least then you know you have 2 working PCs, one at half capacity until you buy a replacement.

Thanks Guys, I can only presume that leaving the computer unplugged from the mains for over a week that it cured the problem because when I plugged it back in, it booted up without any problem. Hard to believe after spending over a month trying to solve the problem.
