2 sticks of RAM too much for PSU?
Posted on 2006-06-23
At work, I'm setting up a server with a Tyan S-2882-D Motherbard, and an Istar USA 460W power supply. The issue is RAM related. I'm trying to install 2x 1GB G.Skill PC3200 DDR SDRAM. When I boot the PC with both sticks installed, the PC does not boot(nothing shows up on the monitor nor is there a POST error code..). I tried doing this with only one stick and it worked. I then swapped sticks to make sure it wasn't just a bad RAM stick. I hope it's not the slot(that's my only guess at this point), but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what the problem could be?
and the CPU is an AMD Opteron 250, so PC3200 RAM should be supported.
