    I've tried your suggestions and I still can't get it to boot.
    I'm getting pretty tired of trying to get this to work. I might just refund my other 4GB kit and live with one 4GB set. 4GB should last a while, anyway.

    I have a feeling if I had a 2x4GB set and put it in slots 1+3, it'd work. It seems to be something about combining 1+3 with 2 or 4 that my motherboard disagrees with, because I've tried getting my computer to run with 6GB of memory and that didn't work either.

    Yeah, 8GB is useless unless you are a Video Editor anyway.

    Is your NB maybe too hot when trying 8GB? Can you touch it for more then 10 seconds with your finger while you run memtest? I guess you would have to be able to run it though.....

    These are all matched sets of ram bought at the same time right? I just ask because you mention trying 6GB. If your 2x2 sets are bought to far apart they may be different IC chips used in the ram and never work together

    I edit videos sometimes, but nowhere near on a regular basis. And I guess since I used to edit videos on a system with 2GB of RAM, I'll be able to manage.

    Anyway, yeah. They're two matched sets of 2x2. Bought them at the same time.
    Thanks again for all the help. Do you think it'd help if I got a NB fan?

    Ya, it for sure could help, as well as adding some more MCH if you aren't already too high

    8GB for sure will work, just takes a bit more tweaking/time put in them 4GB
