I have a Gigabyte AM3 motherboard (specifically a GA-MA785GM-US2H) which
takes DDR2 800Mhz memory. I have a dual core AM2 CPU in the machine if
The machine worked fine with 2 * 1GB DDR2 memory. I just tried to
upgrade to 4 * 2GB DDR2 memory, which the motherboard manual says should
be supported. However, in this configuration the machine doesn't boot.
It doesn't even get to the BIOS, it just reads from the empty DVD drive
over and over. The machine does boot with just 2 * 2GB though.
