What sort of setting would I be looking for? I've combed through the bios a few times, didn't see anything about disabling or enabling ram...?

I've looked at the bios, didn't see anything. Doesn't mean it's not there... Seems unlikely, but what do I know? I just want it fixed... It's not a bad mobo slot is it? Or could it be? I'll have to run memtest again


Gonna sleep now. Check back in the morning. :yawn

soz i have not helped much maybe your slot is damaged? have you had a look in the case for loose cables on the board simple things overlooked can often be the cure

yeah i checked the case, the cable management is done well.. im sort of ocd when it comes to things like that.. ive reseated the ram - windows sees it, just says its not useable which leads me to believe its a software setting
