    Re: IF YOU ARE A NEW GIGABYTE MOTHERBOARD OWNER, CHECK HERE FIRST!!

    Hello, I appreciate this is a fairly basic question compared to some of the items on here, perhaps you can help anyway.

    I use a GA-7N400 Pro 2, I have recently purchased 2 gig of Corsair Value select (2 modules x 1gig) and am having problems booting. I have the 1 gig modules in slots 1 and 2, and the system will POST, get to the end of the memory check, and then stop. No access to BIOS, and the power button doesn't work. I have attempted clearing CMOS to solve this problem, but it doesn't work. Any tips would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    run memtest on each stick individually and together.
    try slots 1+3 or 2+4.
    is your board rev 1 or rev 2?
    what bios do you have?
    what is the rated voltage on your ram?
    once in your bios you can hit ctrl+f1 to show additional bios options.

    DaFanMan should be thru shortly with more questions/answers lol

    Okay, running each stick (2x 1gig, 1x 512meg, 1x 256meg) (on its own) they all post/boot fine.
    Changing slots around doesn't appear to make any difference.
    BIOS is rev 2.
    BIOS is award.. default/vanilla/not flashed after CMOS clear
    Don't know how to find rated voltage
    Yes, Ctrl+F1 = extra options in BIOS.

    take out the 512 and 256, just run the 2gb and see what happens

    Same thing. They all run, on their own, in slot 1. Adding them together is the problem.

    My goal is to get just the 2 x 1gig modules in, the rest is old and can go into the memory-i-use-when-it-blows-up box.

    Same error - either the machine won't post (long bleeps, repeating) or the memory check will complete and then it will hang, before detecting IDE devices.

    B^U^M^P, for a great guide that just helped me solve the problem where it sounds like half a phone conversation coming from my Sons speakers (7N400 Pro Motherboard). Well, I hope it solves it. I did just download the latest ALC650 driver I could find (no help @ Gigabytes website though).
