i3 530, 1156 won't accept single stick 4GB RAM.
« on: September 16, 2019, 07:59:05 PM »

Hi


Meron po akong DDR3 4GB single stick RAM, ayaw po tanggaping ng MOBO 1156. Nakita ko po dapat automatic ito kapag updated ang BIOS.


Kelangan ba updated ang BIOS or may work around ako pwede gawin dito like accessing the BIOS for changes?
Nag BSOD kasi at black screen lang.


Kelangan ko pa I-drain yung CMOS battery para lang mabalik ko yung lumang DDR3 2GB RAM.


Salamat.

Since it boots, most likely a bad RAM (or bad mobo), since if it is incompatible, it will not even boot (or it will boot and will not recognize it)

that platform can support upto 16GB of RAM (according to ARK)

Yes, but my MOBO is working well with 2 x 2GB pc3 10600 RAM now. I updated the BIOS but did not try to put the 4GB RAM back.


Just to clarify, 665mhz = 1333mhz which is PC3 10600, right?

Another thing,


Can PC3 10600 and PC3 12800 work together in a single MOBO?
