I found AMD chipsets more fussy than Intel ones about just the right
RAM. My home VMware box is an AMD 4-core thing, and I have 4 matched
4GB DIMMs purchased for it, of the exact type and speed documented as
its max supported RAM. It will only run with 3 of them fitted.

Anyway, check for BIOS updates. This can help. Worth a shot. If you
can't find where to look, if you give me the exact make and model of
motherboard, and ideally the current BIOS version, I will look for
you. An FCC ID might do at a pinch.
