Windows 7: Asrock RAM Issues

I would RMAS the ASRock board, it seems you got one with bad RAM slots. Pay no attention to a board's QVL list, they don't bother testing much at all.

Use this: G.SKILL - RAM Configurator Then go to the RAM you want and they will have their own QVL list for which they guarantee RAM to work if it's on the specific board/RAM combo list.

Ok i will check that out.
Also my PCI slots are also having issues and my on board audio is blown...

Never seen so much issues on a board and the shop I got it from won't offer any support he told me not to come back like where's the customer support?
not to mention the heat sink bolt snapped off so that's voids the warranty think it was a setup as I was being careful like I usually do.

Maybe I should quick gaming and my YouTube channel and stay with my old 1995 board
not happy

Confused whether the ram is not compatible an moving them wscrews the voltage or the board is on its way out..

It sounds like you're a bit rough on the board, physically.

I had a Asus board and never any issues and I'm always gentle so I don't break anything.

Never had issues with my old 1995 gigabyte board.

I also never overclocked

Hard to tell if its the ram or not :/

The slots work then don't work..

How long has this new mobo been in your system? Did this problem begin right away or develop later? Could you have and extra stand off or misplaced mobo stand off?

Only 2 months the problems started day 1

First windows crashed didn't think much of it so I re installed Windows.
A few weeks the later the had would randomly loose power which would freeze system.

What more frustrating I have a channel to manage with 10,00 views

I think a replacement mobo is where you're headed. Maybe back to ASUS although I've built two systems on ASRock boards and both rocked !

Aussie vs USA pricing is vastly different. You want to stick with a A series AMD APU chip? I wish you were closer I have a killer 8 core bulldozer with crossfired MSI 5770's with maybe 10 hours on it that would rock your world !

Sounds great

I am selling the system as faulty $300 Negotiable on gumtree with the CPU and drives hope that sells should be enough to get new CPU and a Asus motherboard. Gigabyte seems alright as will

Then I work getting a hard drive but for now I have a old 1995 gigabyte system I am using for the meantime surprisingly it still gets basic tasks and web designing done

I put the old board in the newer case.
