First time here and of course it's for a problem. Just purchased an Abit AI7\nboard. I pulled the Intel I had in there and put the Abit board in. I'n no\nnovice when it comes to this. I've been building my own computers for years.\nConnected everything and tried booting. The initial boot starts and then the\nmachine turns itself off 10 seconds after. The LED reads 8.0. I've checked\nand double checked every connection. The only thing I can think of is I have\nonly one dimm bank used, a 256mb pc3200 ddr chip. I'm waiting on 2 other\n256mb chips. Nowhere does it say that they have to be installed in pairs,\nbut do they? Everything else looks in perfect order. I had to pull the board\nand reinstall the other to connect to the newsgroup to post this question.\nThanks for any help.
