    I'm trying to install 2x2 GB of the 3rd and 4th slot but whenever i try to boot it up it doesnt post and then when i take the 3rd slot ram out it works, i kno it isnt the ram because i've tried 2 sets of ram, ive had this half a year now, is there anything i can do?

    New motherboard?

    Thankyou

    Check for bent/broken pins in the slot. It takes good eyes, but you should spot them.
    I got a board that had bent pins in 2 ram slots, I was able to bend 1 back, the other I couldn't.
