    Angry Re: Gigabyte X48-DQ6 reboot/hang problem

    Hi Salty,

    thanks for replying my thread.

    I've changed my Motherboard to Asus and I'm now using lower quality RAM with the default settings which is working just fine.

    but until now, I'm still don't understand why eventhough I changed to Asus Rampage Formula Motherboard with 4x Corsair TWIN2X2048-8500C5D PC-8500 (1066MHz) DDR2 RAM

    my Asus also won't boot up properly ?!?!?!?!

    Thanks Salty for your help....

    I would like to try changing those values, but i cant even get the computer to power up properly.

    All it does is power up for 4 secs, then switch off again.

    I've tried all 4 different sticks of RAM, no combination will get it to power up properly.

    You've probably already tried it, but do you know someone with a similar pc, running ddr2? If so, you could memtest yr ram on theirs, and also, try their ram in your mobo. (Hopefully different brand ram)

    Unfortunately i dont know anyone with a similiar pc runnind DDR2.

    I'll have to purchase a stick or two of 1gb ram and see how that goes.

    Does anyone know which Ram actually works well with the X48-DQ6 ?

    "Does anyone know which Ram actually works well with the X48-DQ6 ?"

    The usual line is that a pc has so many variations of components that you cannot guarantee that every combination will be conflict/problem free. I've had Corsair that wouldn't work properly with my mobo, and then Corsair that works fine. This X48 problem comes up a lot with Corsair twinx, but saw a post where a user with adata ram and x48 had same problem.

    Mushkin gets recommended elsewhere, but Australia only seems to have value select at Gamedude, and nothing else. You would have to go to ebay or order from overseas to get their top end sticks. Otherwise you could Google "ddr2 ram comparison" or similar to help choose from what's available in Oz.

    I don't know why yours wouldn't POST with one stick any more - mine never did that to me, touch wood. Hope you have a win soon.

    Thanks Salty..... I went to the Gigabyte webpage and checked out reccommended Ram and ordered a Kingston 1G 667 MHz DDR2 KVR667D2N5/1G, hopefully it'll arrive soon and we'll see what happens...fingers crossed.

    lol... ok i received that stick of Ram.... guess what... nothing, wont even boot up ! so now Ram thats compatible with the Motherboard wont even work. :((

    kovaxo.... you mentioned a power supply problem, i have an Antec Quattro 1000w PSU, could you elaborate for me...that would be great.


    Its looking like my only other option is to throw this gaigabyte peice of crap into the bin and get a decent Motherboard ! seems like others have found this the only solution to this problem.

    Why on earth would a company develop and produce such an unstable unit ??? 4 months has passed now, and still my computer just sits there, i wonder why i am getting so frustrated !

    Since you have a quality PSU, it may only be a problem if it is defective. If possible try a different one to rule out the PSU as a factor in your problem.

    The mainboard itself may not be the problem, unless its defective. Remember that there's a huge number of combinations of parts when building a PC and it's simply not possible to check them all so combinations will always not work properly. No matter what motherboard you buy, you can always get unlucky and end up with a combination that jsut won't work.

    Also, could you sum up your problem for me, a 10 page is a bit of a long read. I answer so many threads atm that I always have to browse through them again before making posts or I get confused.

    Edit: NVM, that last part, just noticed that you aren't the thread starter, reply inc soon.

    @ Albert

    I have that RAM kit myself and it runs fine on my X38 DQ6, which is very similar to your gigabyte X48 (X48 is just a newer revision of X48).
    The RAM may come in different revisions though, so we may have totally different chips and thus completely different RAM.
    RAM has always been an issue and that's why compatability lists, as not all combinations are compatible.
    And since the Asus board doesn't like the Dominators either, I think there never was anything wrong with your board, your problem was probably always just the RAM.


    @DBDD

    Here's what might cause your problems:

    - the new RAM is also incompatible, unlikely, but it's a possibility
    - your PSU is defective
    - your video card is defective
    - your replacement board is defective
    - CPU might be defective, but that is rare as well

    If possible try a different PSU and video card, those are the components that I suspect
