    I've been running a stick of 512MB GeIL Golden Dragon DDR400 for a few years now, no probls. I recently bought 2 Kingston DDR400 512MB sticks.

    If the GeIL is in slot one, it won't post. If it's not in slot 1, the mobo doesnt recognise it.

    How can I troubleshoot it? I know all of the sticks are good, I've tried different combos with the slots, and each seperately. Mobo is good for 2gb.

    Mobo: AOpen AX4GE Tube-G

    Try each stick individually in the first slot, if one works add another to the second and then try it again. Then add to third if it works.

    If you can't get a stick working in slot one, you'll need to get another stick of memory. One which is one sided (memory chips only on one side of the PCB).

    Hmmm, I wonder how I missed that on their site. Thanks for the help... all three sticks have chips on both sides, so I guess that is my problem. I'll just sell one I guess, and run 1GB RAM.

    you probably won't notice a big performance jump between a gig and 1.5 gigs of memory anyways.
