my main board is doing everything do drive me crazy.
Maybe someone has an idea whats wrong and how to fix it.
Core I5 2500K
Radeon HD 4870
So the Problem:
I wanted to upgrade my ram from 2x2GB to 2x2GB and 2x4GB (2GB sticks Kingston KVR1333D3N9K2/4G, 4GB sticks Kingston KVR1333D3N9/4G)
The System worked fine with 2x2GB sticks in DIMM1 and 2 (the blue ones)
I changed the 2GB into 3 and 4 (the black ones) and put the 4GB into 1 and 2 (the blue ones)
The Motherboard gave me some error Messages basically saying there is a Problem with ram. I think it was error 28? but I am not sure. So I updated the BIOS to the newest Version hoping that would help, but it didn't. I also made a reset of the bios, both with the Pins and the battery did not help.
Only the error changed to 27 when I have more than 1 stick of ram in the Mainboard.
So the Status now is,
I can put 1 stick of ram into the first Slot and it works (every ram stick works)
As soon as I put another ram (additional to stick in Slot 1) into the 2 or 4 Slot i receive three beeps and error message 27 and the pc restarts after about 3sec.
When ,I additionally to stick in 1, put a stick in Slot 3 the pc starts but does not find the extra ram.
When I put a stick into 2,3 or 4 alone it does not work (error 27)
My BIOS Memory Settings are set on automatic means 1333 9-9-9-24 1,5V that is what the ram is supposed to have.
I tried with 1,65V but didn't make any difference.
So I really somebody has an idea how to fix it as I really want the extra ram.
Try a BIOS recovery to version 2161, since this version fixed some memory issues. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20931&lang=eng&OSVersion=%0A%09%09%0...
The following link will show you how to rollback to a previous BIOS version:

Then update to version 2185 and test the board https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=21293&lang=eng&OSVersion=%0A%09%09%0...
