  5. Hi, i have this problem with 4x 2gb .. And i don't know how to fix this….

  6. i doubt one of your ram is dead, and you have to replace it.
    you can figure it out by this way,
    take out all rams,and add to black slot each ram one by one.and switch on PC,if PC switch on with each RAM, then 1st add 2 rams in black slots and start the PC, shutdown & add remaining 2 rams in white slots,
    hope it will resolve your issue.
