RAM not recognized

MS-7613 Inverness



I am trying to upgrade the RAM on my system but the system does not boot when i install either 1 or both of the new RAMs. However if i use my old RAM it works like a charm. Can you please help me with this?


Motherboard :  MS-7613 Ver2.0

Slots: 2 Blue

BIOS Revision : 6.07 11/29/10

Core Version: 08.00.15

Old RAM: 2GB pc3 10600U

NEW RAM: 2x8GB DDR3 1600


I have tried 2GB pc3 10600U + 8GB DDR3 1600as well, but no luck.


I was hoping even if the new RAMs were higher clock , it would come down to the max supported by the board. please correct me if i am wrong and also help me understand the best practices for choosing a compatible RAM for a given Motherboard and CPU.


Thanks in advance.
