So I'm building a new PC for my father in law:
- MSI 970A-G46 mobo
- 2x4Gb Team DDR3 1333 RAM
- AMD Athlon II x2 240 CPU (from older build, will probably upgrade later)
When first putting it all together with RAM in slots 2&4 as suggested in the manual, nothing happens. Black screen. So I pulled them both and tried 1 stick in slot 2 and nothing happened. Tried same one in slot 4 and it booted up fine. Tried the other one in slot 4 and again booted fine. Tried one more time with both in 2&4 and nothing.
I haven't tried to update the BIOS yet but did reset the CMOS with no effect. Something else I'm missing? Should I RMA the mobo as it seems to be the issue?
