well the auto setting doesn't seem to do it and doing it manually didn't help either but no there is a specific option to set all 4.

I was about to post the same thing - I'd recommend manually setting the timings (lowest common denominator) and voltages (upper end of the makers recommended range). Ensure the command rate is 2T. There should also be a setting buried in the Bios for 'tRFC' - Sometimes it can have different names/initials: Look for "Refresh to Activate Delay" in the advanced memory settings. You want 54 or greater if you're having trouble with stability.

If that doesn't work, you may need to downclock (RAM only - through the memory divider) and try again.

After this is resolved you might want to go into your system control panel>advanced settings>advanced>startup>and change to a small dump.

I'm having a similar problem.
My problem is that a Tech said that my Motherboard doesn't support three slots of RAM at full speed (1600), and that it slows whenever 1 slot is inserted. Example : 1 Slot used 1600, 2 Slots used 1333, 3 Slots used 1066.

Is he telling the truth?

And When i say tech, i mean the guy who sold me the computer.
