  • Asus Dimm Slot Bad?

    system only recognizes 4mb ram when 6mb installed. IDK if it has always been that way, or I only just looked at it today. System from Feb 2010. All three sticks firmly seated in the orange slots; i took them out one at a time and switched around, nothing is read from the top orange slot, regardless of which ram stick is in there, so i am guessing it is not ram. I put all three sticks in the black slots and the system will not start up. I have not done a bios update, but nothing has changed on my system this week; so I am also guessing that maybe it was never read as 6gb? bios shows 4gb as does the windows look up.

    Please help. nothing updated/software not changed/no new drivers this week.

    ?? is there an online test for bad dimm slots?

    Which slot? The nearest Orange slot from cpu socket?
    You need to carefully inspect the cpu socket for any bent pins,this will cause memory/slot problems,take great care when checking not to bend any
