    Tonight I am going to test and see if I am able to put both modules in DDR_2 and DDR_4. If that all works I will start putting the rest of the components back together and hopefully get it up and running.

    Thank you guys for all the suggestions. I will touch back here again after I do some more testing tonight.
    I would also check just to make sure you had it seated put it back into the first slot again to make sure it wont boot if it wont yeah that slot is dead. I beleave you can still do duel channel in slots 2+4. Try one stick in every slot to check the rest then try putting both in slots 2-4.

    Here is an update.

    I tested all the other memory slots and it turns out that only the ddr2_1 slot is bad. So I put the sticks of memory in 2 + 4. Everything booted up correctly. Installed it back into the case connected everything else on it as well and it booted up perfectly fine. Was able to get into the bios and everything.

    Is there any other tests to ensure that all the hardware is functioning correctly?

    Well outside of that looks like the next step is to work on getting Windows 7 installed now.

    Thanks to all of you that helped me out.

    you can run memtest to test ram before or after you install os. have to boot off something either cd,floppy,usb drive... to run test. after os is installed you can run Intel burn test (IBT), LinX, Prime95. They will test system for stability. IBT and LinX will push your cpu harder then prime95. Use realtemp, coretemp or something to monitor temps. Glad to hear all worked out.

    I ran with my memory in slots 2 & 4 for several months with no stability or performance issues with my overclocked system.

    Your initial problems might have been related to using AUTO on certain bios settings. This post shows recommended manual bios settings for a stock setup, where some bios voltage settings were set using manual values. These settings have eliminated many problems for forum members. The most important thing to do is to load OPTIMIZED bios settings from the main bios screen, save settings and exit, re-enter the bios and then enter all your bios settings.

    If you have any further questions or issues, post your bios settings using one of the two available generic bios templates for your mobo, by clicking on the last line in my signature.

    Yes you will be fine as profjim says with slots 2+4, but you also need to think about maybe RMA due to faulty slots if you plan to keep that board for any amount of time. Just in case you ever want to use all 4 slots anytime.

    I agree with the possible RMA option.
    Using only 2 memory slots might be OK for now, but when running with a 64-bit operating system, you'll be better off using more than 2x2GB of memory.

    I'm building a system with almost the identical configuration (Thermaltake case) a MichaelW with the identical problem. And with the identical solution!

    I really appreciate this forum and its contributors. Thanks!
