    Dead RAM Channel?

    hi,
    i have Motherboard: ASUS M4A79T Deluxe
    Video card: A 7600 gt manufactured by pny.
    Ram: 4 corsair cmx512 [512mb]
    Powersupply: Raidmax atx12v
    I cant be sure about the cpu, all I know is that it's made by amd.when i tried to restart my computer means restarting Windows and the BIOS, the board signaled it had "dead ram." I have tested ALL possible combinations of sticks on the motherboard.after passing the loading screen and it freezes.Any help will be extremely appreciated.

    When booting one of the post screens should report your memory and state that it is running in dual channel mode.

    hi,
    Some programs, or specific versions of particular programs, suffer more fragmentation problems than others. If you shut your computer down each night, and have 128 megs of memory, but still suffer fragmented memory related hangs, or other problems, you may be able to extend the amount of time you can use your computer by adding more memory, or fix the root of the problem by installing the latest version of the program(s) that are causing the problem.
