Hi, guys.

I just bought a Crucial 8gb 2666hz RAM to pair with my other one, older, LT 2400hz of the same brand, but it's not working at all. I have a Asus H110m motherboard and a G4560 CPU. Although none of those works in 2666, I assume it does for <2400? I already tried loading both and only 1 of them. When loading my pc with the older one as the main, it works but the new one isnt recognized at all. When trying loading with only the new one, my pc wont start. It's most probably not the slots, since the main slot works fine with the older one.

Probably the new RAM is just defective?

boot with the old one, load optimized settings, and set the ram speed to 2133mhz, then save and exit, plug in the new ram, and try.

NOw the one old wont work. But the new it's working, so its not defective. The new one is at the second slot (edit: it wouldnt boot as the first slot) (third, according to CPU-Z), and the old one is at the first slot, but it's not wokring (not being recognized). Should I turn off XMP? It's on, but the target is 2133hz

didnt it resets when you load defaults? well my point here is just disable xmp and force speed to 2133mhz, why even using xmp for mixed ram?

So, i don't understand much about computers, but it does seem resetting? But it says 2133, although it has the 2400 option turned on, so not sure.
So heres a picture of the setup:

yes, reset the bios, just do that, and dont use any xmp profiles.

Should i do that with the f5 button inside the setup? Cause still isnt recognizing the first slot RAM. Or should I use the motherboard button?

edit: @Koekieezz k, it works. I took the RAM out then putted again. I may have plugged wrong, prob cause I was afraid it break something. Sorry about that. But its working now, both of them. 2400hz, dual channel. no xmp either. https://ibb.co/Hr9hn7w
