Hi,

 

What changes did you make other than installing the second processor?

Hi,

 

When running two processors you need to have memory populated to both sides. This will in fact cause a boot issue.

 

User manual can be reviewed here.

Cheaper and easier to start working on your RAM problem........ are those new memory sticks an exact match for the original ones?
