System:

MSI P43 Neo
Core 2 duo e8500
Msi p43 neo ddr2
2x2gb ddr2
Gt 620 OEM
Gammaxx 200t
80gb hdd (not plugged in for testing)

Note: i tested both sticks on dual
channel on a different nobrand motherboard and they worked.

This is what i tested on the msi p34 neo ddr2:
Single channel
Ram 1 slot 1 = POST
Ram 2 slot 1 = POST
Ram 1 slot 2 = POST
Ram 2 slot 2 = POST
Ram 1 slot 3 = POST
Ram 2 slot 3 = POST
Ram 1 slot 4 = POST
Ram 2 slot 4 = POST
-------------------------
Dual channel
Ram 1 slot 1
  • Ram 2 slot 2 = Boot Loop (no POST)
  • Ram 2 slot 3 = Boot Loop (no POST)
  • Ram 2 slot 4 = Boot Loop (no POST)
Ram 1 slot 2
  • Ram 2 slot 1 = Boot Loop (no POST)
  • Ram 2 slot 3 = Boot Loop (no POST)
  • Ram 2 slot 4 = Boot Loop (no POST)
Ram 1 slot 3
  • Ram 2 slot 1 = Boot Loop (no POST)
  • Ram 2 slot 2 = Boot Loop (no POST)
  • Ram 2 slot 4 = Boot Loop (no POST)
Ram 1 slot 4
  • Ram 2 slot 1 = Boot Loop (no POST)
  • Ram 2 slot 2 = Boot Loop (no POST)
  • Ram 2 slot 3 = Boot Loop (no POST)
Have made sure that they're slotted in properly

Does anyone have a solution or possible solution to this?

Are those 2 x 2 GB RAM modules from a kit and matched for Dual Channel use?

RAM modules: make, model, source?

Are you physically installing the first RAM module into DIM M1 first?

Reference:

[Note: Verify that I found the applicable motherboard User Manual.]

Read through the User Manual to double check everything include all notes and fine print. Go to the motherboard's website and look for any updates regarding RAM and the motherboard in general.

Ensure that all installed components are supported - especially RAM.
