So I tried to add 2 4gbs rams to my already existing 2 4gb rams(same kind)...So I have 2 memory channel motherboard I boot up the pc and the bios crashes...I restart it and bios simply wont load but the pc worked nut only on intergrated graphic card...So I decide to reset my motherboard by taking out the battery...I put everything back like it was and pc starts booting but´doesnt load even without bios...any thoughts?

did you try booting with out the new RAM? It's possible the new RAM are not compatible with your MB.

Well I removed the additional pair of ram...and only the original set remained there...also I tried switching channels...neither helped

you probably damaged the memory socket on the motherboard.

Dont think so...since the sockets stayed untouched during both the bios wont load but windows will and the bios wont set up phase.I think I might have tampered with the motherboard itself
