So basically I cant get my DDR3 4 Gb Ram sticks to work, I used to just run 2 2Gb Ram sticks, but one of them went bad so i took it out and have been running just on one 2gb ram stick, since then I ordered some Kingston 2 4gb sticks ddr3 1600, ( Online manual says mobo should beable to run up to 16 gb so i would imagine it should be compatible) however computer fails to boot at all. Any help people? Since then I went to best buy and bought a PNY DDR PC3 10666, i think it should be compatible but also fails to run. Ohh the model of the mobo is an ASUS M4A785T-M

Also i'm using windows 7 64 bit, and running an Phenom II
