Just bought a used computer yesterday. Came with 4 x 1 Gig ram memory. It's an HP Pavillion desktop with an Asus motherboard in it. The motherboard itself can handle up to 16 Gig (x4 slots at 4 gig a piece) so that's not the problem. The problem is, everything I try to boot it with anything more than one chip in (1 gig) it runs, but nothing appears on the monitor. Just acts like it's going to boot and never does. I've tried using two and four sticks both, properly placed, and same error. Anyone have a fix for this problem? - Windows 7 Ultimate Edition. 150 Gig Hard Drive. Asus M4A785-M Motherboard. AMD Phenom 2 Quad Processor.

For more information, all four sticks are the exact same. Brand and everything. All four memory chip will work in the first slot. I've even went so far as to trying to change max memory settings in MSCONFIG..

Nevermind.. Figured it out. Tried to reset BIOS back to factory, but it didn't work. To anyone that might be having the same problem, on most motherboards, there is a little thing called a jumper. To fix this problem, I switched the jumper over (which clears the CMOS, if i'm not mistaken) and switched it back.

For those who have big fingers or bad eyes, you can also accomplish this by taking out the CMOS battery for a few minutes. It's about the size of a U.S. nickle.

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.
