    have you tried 1 stick? it only uses PC2100 and lower. I have the A7V266-E and had the same problem, when you were attaching the HSF, did you hit those little areas on the board near the ram? when i did, the system did not recognize any ram, anywhere, or any time. Basically i am asking if you severed the conenction between the CPU and ram.

    i thik they are air tight, but if you want to try you can. i tried a few things and non of them worked. Either get back money from the person you bought from or send it to asus (no cpu or ram included) and they should repair or replace it.
