So i'm trying to get some life out of this motherboard, originally purchased in 2010. It currently has 2 x 2G Kingston sticks in it and was planning on replacing these with 2 x 4G sticks in the same slots. I purchased a pair of PNY MDK8192KD3-1333 which matched up to the specs of the motherboard exactly. I also updated the bios to the most current version, verified voltage and all I get out of the computer when I boot with the new memory is 3 long beeps. I'm not sure what direction to go at this point since I don't want to just keep buying different RAM sticks and guess as to whether they will work or not. I've emailed PNY to see if there is a compatability issue on that they know of, just looking for any possible suggestions at this point.
Thanks in advance.
Windergard, I was checking the specifications of the memory and it looks to be compatible with your motherboard, however I couldn't find too much information about it.
So, in order to find out the reason why this memory is not working on your system we would need to run some basic troubleshooting.
Please let me know if you are able to boot up using only one memory stick on DIMM # 1 (blue)?
Let me know the result.
