Last June i built my first box. check with a hardware friend to check the best setup for me. build came as follows.
ASUS A7N8X Mobo
AMD Athlon 2800+ Barton
2x 256k kingston Ram
Leadtek vid card w/ NVidia Geforce FX 5200 chipset
Samsung 52x CDROM
TDK 4x DVD+RW
When i got the board i stated w/ the BIOS rev 1003, every boot showed proper CPU and RAM in dual channel mode. took me a while to get around to it but a few months ago i was having other hardware issues (for another post) so i started by updating the BIOS to rev 1007 from the ASUS site. On my reboot and ever since the boot show the RAM in Single-channel mode. Even upon downgrading to ev 1006 it still has this same issue.
Is this an issue with my Mobo, Settings, the Bios updates or something else??? SHould i just go back to rev1003, or try out the revs in between?? Could i have a bad stick of ram???
