    - Suggestions,
    1. Let monitor/LCD scan again by “Auto-Tune” or “Auto adjustment”.
    2. Load BIOS Default Settings, Save & Exit Setup .
    3. Set “HT Frequency” to “Auto” under “Advanced Setup” in BIOS setup menu.
    4. Set “Share Memory Size” to 256MB if it is just 64MB/128MB under “Advanced Chipset Setup” in BIOS setup menu.






    Question
    Can this model support buffered memory? 


    Answer
    Buffered memory, has a register/buffers between the RAM modules and the system’s memory controller, is more suited for server need. Unbuffered memory, has a register/buffers into the memory controller design on the motherboard, is suited for personal computers and workstations. This model cannot support buffered memory.

    Memory support:
    • DDR3 1333/1066/800 DDR3 SDRAM with Dual Channel supported
    • Accommodates two unbuffered DIMMs
    • 2 x 240-pin DDR3 DIMM sockets support up to 4 GB
