DDR3 1333 Mhz Not working on Gigabyte G41M Combo Mobo
« on: April 16, 2015, 07:19:34 am »

Hi everyone,

I have Gigabyte G41M Combo Mobo rev 2.0 with Intel C2d E7400 2.8 Ghz processor and DDR2 Ram.

I bought G skill RipjawsX 1333 Mhz 1*4 Gb but couldn't make it work.
The G-Skill customer service said that Ripjaws series used one sided IC chips which might not work on older motherboards.
They adviced me to buy Value Ram series so I bought G-Skill 4 Gb DDR3 1333 Mhz Value ram which they said uses two sided IC Chips.

But it still doesn't work.
I reset the bios, load the defaults but still it won't work.
When I switch on the power, There is no display and no beeps but the mobo is working I can see the fan running.

And there are two people I know(online review) who are using the same ram on the same mobo and its working for them?
Yes I am installing it firmly in the right slot and not using DDR2 and DDR3 together.

What do I do? Anything I might be missing, anyone?

Help Urgent Need!
Thanks in Advance
