Windows 7: Ram problem

Layback Bear

Windows 7 Pro. 64/SP-1

kingscurate the motherboard manual will always show how the ram should be installed but it really doesn't tell you why in most cases. It's a very important manual to save.

99% of the time the first slot to the right of the CPU is slot #1 then what ever color code that is slip the 2nd stick in that next same colored slot and then leave the Kingston ram out of the rig and you'll be good to go.

Great to hear that you got is all playing nice together. I thought the Kingston ram was one module and not two sticks? It's all good ram and again glad you got it in the correct slots. Looks like this mobo fell into the 1% category !
