Default Re: New Install of 10.3.3: Physical RAM Running Low Immediately


So don't laugh too hard at me. I opened up the case and figured I would remove one of the 2 chips and kinda test them one at a time. However, that is when I noticed one of the chips was in DIMM slot 3. I looked closely and they are labeled 1 through 6. I know you have to fill up the blue ones first on this board, but noticed they were in slots 2 and 3 instead of 1 and 2. Took the one out of 3 and put it in 1. Problem resolved!

I did some research before I opened the case and also saw that bent pins on the cpu chip can cause this type of problem. Thought I would mention that just in case someone else has a similar issue.

Anyway, don't make too much fun. The pc came to me that way. Anyway, I plan to eventually put in 3 4gb chips for 12gb.

Have a good weekend everyone. Now to relearn what I once new Pro Tools over the weekend!
