motherboard issue.......

Recommended Posts

I am 99 percent sure I have a bad dimm slot on my ausus motherboard. Its a M2WPV-VM. I put 4 sticks of ddr2 ram in and it only shows 1.46. I then took out all the ram. Used just one stick of 512 ram. One slot at a time and started the puter. 3 of the 4 booted fine. The fouth slot would not boot. Used the same stick of ram so I am sure its not the stick of ram itself. It did work fine in the other 3 slots.

Has anyone ever replaced one of these. Myself I wont. I will either ship the whole puter back and let them fix it. Its still under warinty. Or let a local shop put one in. Depends on the cost. If its cheeper just to have a local shop replace it than to ups the whole puter back to the factory I may go that route. Oh its a barebones setup and the motherboard tray is removable so it should not be that big of deal to replace. Apreciate any imput.
