    At what point do you get this error?

    I know the first display is usually the video card and video RAM.  Does the system run through POST at all?  Can you get to the BIOS, to see the RAM, there?

      thanks but i figured it with alot of research, just incase anyone else gets the same problem, just roll back the bios version to 1014 and the pc will pick up 4 sticks of 1gb ram straight away newer bios has bugs, all bios versions and tools can be found on the asus website. thanks again for your help

      I'm not the most experienced guy on here, but one of my most consistent messages is not to flash the BIOS, or do it as the very last resort.  As you found, it often causes more problems than it fixes -- and sometimes, you can't roll back once you've done it!!

      I know why people do it, sometimes -- they've updated drivers, so they figure, update the BIOS.  No -- please don't.  Too much of a chance of getting this  :'( instead of this  :).

      I'm glad you were able to roll back, and we thank you for letting us know the solution.
