    Just purchased more RAM and it's not working

    Thanks, I'll try that as soon as I get home. Any other suggestions if that doesn't fix it? BIOS upgrade? I'm at revision 0501 and the latest one is 2106...so mine is pretty outdated.

    It doesn't matter as far as the problem I'm having, but I'm running Windows 7 x64.

    Just purchased more RAM and it's not working

    I have not tried that yet. That's simply removing the battery for a few seconds then putting it back in right? Forgot to mention, I brought the memory in to work with me and it works perfect in my work computer. One stick at a time and then both sticks at the same time...system booted just fine.

    I guess I needed to seperate those two lines. There is no POST with either stick of memory installed. When my computer boots up...normally, with the 4GB RAM installed...it says DDR3-1333 even thought the 4GB is DDR3-1600...The 4GB and 8GB have the exact same specs.

    Just purchased more RAM and it's not working

    No post on either stick of RAM. On bootup my screen says DDR3-1333, but the RAM is DDR3-1600. Would that matter? The 4GB I have in there right now is DDR3-1600 and is working fine. Not sure why it says 1333. I've reset BIOS to factory defaults and still nothing. Could I have really gotten...

    Does it matter which slot? A1, A2, B1, or B2?

    DisplayPort & HDMI

    Thanks for the info. I'm currently using DVI but thought the other 2 options would give better quality. Once again, thanks.

    DisplayPort & HDMI

    I just purchased a Dell UltraSharp U2311H monitor and it has a DisplayPort connection on it. I've done a little reading on it and there are several people that say DisplayPort offers better quality than HDMI. I do Photo editing with CS5 and I really want the best/most realistic results from my...

    Still at work and doubt I'll feel like messing with my computer when I get home...assuming I do need a new PSU, is this combo a decent deal? http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.343599
