    Abit aw8-max 4E post error after ram upgrade

    Hi,

    I was using my Abit aw8-max board with 2x1 GB Kingston(KVR667D2N5/1G) without any issue for a long time. Because of the max 8 GB support ı was planning to upgrade it higher ram capacities.

    1 - I tried 4x1 GB Kingston(KVR667D2N5/1G) but didn't work. After booting on the screen only see 1 core CPU and stuck at this stage. The error code was 4E on the motherboard led screen.
    2 - I ordered 4x2 GB Elpida(EBE21EE8ACWA-8G-E). I installed 1x2 GB of it and it works fine without any issue. Afterward, installed the second stick as 2x2 GB. At this time I had the same problem as Post Code 4E.

    I did many search on the web and read several articles but they didn't help me to overcome the problem.

    I also uploaded hwinfo output of my computer with current hardware details.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi,

    After many investigations, I have found the reason that causes the system hang. I have changed Asus 210 graphics card with an older one that existed on my inventory. Right now motherboard starts up properly and working with 8 GB memory.
