hi all, i cant get my hp pro 3120 mt to except more than 4gb of ram, it is a 64bit pc so it is capable of an upgrade to 8gb. tried 4x2gb and 2x4gb all hynix 10600 sticks. wont even except 2x2gb
i have 1x2gb and 2x1gb and thats the only way i can get it to work for 4gb. i also cant seem to increase the voltage in bios. thanks for any help in advance

If certain modules won't work together (including after clearing the CMOS?), then it's likely you have modules that simply won't "play nice" with one another - it's a risk with 'mixing and matching' RAM modules, and happens all too often, unfortunately.

All I can suggest would be to find a matching retail kit of 4x2GB - that should work successfully.

HP BIOS' isn't likely to let you touch the voltage, OEM systems do not typically allow changing of much.

As for the RAM issue, is the issue in posting/booting, or inside Windows?

Are you using x64 or x86 (64 or 32bit Windows)?
