I had bought a G.Skill 8GB set, I thought that it was a DOA set so I took it back and got the Kingston set. I bought KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX for my M4A785TD-V-EVO mother board. When I plugged it in, nothing happened (same as the G.Skill set), my PC didn't start, just the fans started. I called the store and the guy suggested that updating my BIOS could help fix the issue. I told my friend who is more knowledgeable than me about the issue and he asked if I checked the QVL for my mother board...I didn't even think to do that (it just shows how noobish i am in regards to hardware).
So I'm wondering if updating the BIOS will allow me to use the RAM, or should I just take it back and look for a set off of the QVL?
