  3. 3
    RAM mode.
    In addition, check what mode support is on your motherboard: there are a single-, dual-, triple-, and quadro-channel modes that add more to the limitation. That means that you have to place 1, 2, 3, or 4 sticks of memory in specific memory slots in order for them to be detected. This information can be found in your motherboard manual.

    Size and timing.
    On top of that, all of the memory sticks must have the same timing and size (timing: 7-8-7-24, size: 8 GB, for example).

    Firmware.
    Do not forget to update your motherboard firmware when there is an update available.

If doing both tricks is not helping you, then the slot might be defective; and the motherboard will need replacing or fixing in the nearest service center.

Took out the DIMM cards and started receiving the beep codes. Does this mean the memory is bad?

Have power to computer, lights, fans, but have no display or keyboard or mouse. No post beep heard?. I have tried: Pulled DIMM memory, swapped power supply. I think it was caused by: Not sure, started after a restart
