Ram not recognized by mobo

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone.

 

So um kinda new here, and um in desperate need of help.. So heres what happened

I had a 4gb ram ( DDR 4 ) and i bought another 4gb ( DDR4)  to go with it [ Different brands ]. However, My mobo unfortunately isnt recognizing one of them when i try to run them together.. 

Things I have tried so far
1) Tried to run my PC with each ram individually.. Both works 
2) Tried placing each ram individually on different slots .. Both works
3) The ram is compatible with my mobo.. and yes, both ram has the same DDR and bus speed. 
4) If i place my old ram on SLOT 1 and new ram on SLOT 2.. my PC doesnt start . However, vice-versa works, but one of them doesnt respond.
 
My mobo:  Gigabyte H110M-DS2V-CF

are both ram sticks dual channel or is one maybe single channel only?

I'm afraid there's no real solution other than just buying identical sticks. Mixing and matching RAM isn't a good way to go about things. It's likely that one of the sticks has a different number of ranks than the other.

Some details:

Which ram sticks? If they're too different we'll let you know. Not just brand, but speed and CAS latency too.

Also, when happens when you go to the BIOS with both ram dimms installed? I'm not sure if "one doesn't respond" means it's not detected in your operating system or you can't see it no matter what.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

@narrdarr  hmm i couldn't find how to enable xmp from bios yet.. 

@fasauceome I have matched both of their bus speed and all. And when i place both rams, the dimm only shows one. Either Slot 1 or slot 2.. but not both.. Its my mobo thats not detecting. I would be less worried if it was an issue with my operating system.
