Take a look at your motherboard book and make sure the RAM you are installing is supported by your motherboard.

Well it would help if you told us what you have there

Now with Modern Intel M'Boards at least if you use more than the 2 Initial RAM Slots you need to use the recommend RAM and normally the fastest that the M'Board supports not slower RAM.

When you go to 3 or more RAM Sticks and the System doesn't boot this is because the RAM is not supported for that configuration but without knowing the Make & Model of the M'Board here I can not offer any more help than to suggest looking on the M'Boards Makers Web Site at the Recommend RAM or reading the Manual.

Not much help here as according to ASUS

Here

http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket939/a8v-deluxe/A8V_Deluxe_QVL.pdf

They do not claim that any more than 512 MEG Sticks are compatible with this M'Board in their Qualified Vendors List for Memory.

I would ask ASUS for their recommended speed RAM to use all 4 RAM Slots in Dual Chanel Mode but I would expect it to require 333 RAM.

so give us details of the message you receive

If you see the MFG splash screen or BIOS screen during bootup, then the BIOS correctly detected your processor, memory, and peripheral cards and attempts to boot to the operating system. If after the "hand off" to the operating system your system stops, with a stop fatal error [BSOD] then there will be a code. 0X0XXXXXXX where X is a series of #s. What are they?

Does Asus have any information on their forum boards on this problem?
