Hi recently I got a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P as an exchange for my blown up MSI motherboard.
The problem I have is the motherboard that I own (GA-78LMT-S2P) does find both RAM modules installed, but only uses the memory from 1 module. (Im making it sound complicated I know sorry).
I have a Kingston DDR3 2x4GB 1600Mhz RAMs, the system only boots if the RAM stick is in the 3rd slot (furthest one away from CPU socket), otherwise it does not boot. (Bios labels them 1 and 3 for some reason.)
I am running a 64bit Windows 10 which shows that there is 8GB of RAM installed but 4GB is reserved for hardware.
I tried everything users with this issue recommended starting with changing RAM on boot, to changing directories. I have recently updated the BIOS with the latest version (F4B) and it did not change anything the RAM in the first slot is not used at all.
Also the AMD CPU has been overclocked from 3.5Ghz to 3.8Ghz, I don't know if the overclocking would mess anything up with the RAM. I had a similar issue with my previous MSI board, but in there, there was a case of dust in one of the sockets, unlike here the motherboard is around 2 weeks old.
The full system specs:
Kingston DDR3 2x4GB 1600Mhz
Windows 10 64bit
F4B Bios Version.
