    so, it is more likely a fault in the motherboard somewhere, in regards to the memory
    slots not making connection, OR, possibly shorted out by contact to the case. Check
    for any obvious signs of cross-circuits or shorts, if none seen then you may need to
    check on replacing the mortherboard.

    That's normal as most Desktop system can not use ECC RAM. You need to test the RAM on a M'Board that uses ECC RAM to see if it's working.
