Im using 2 4gb sticks with a gigabyte fm2 family, it should be able to take it

I assume you are using a 64 bit version of your Windows operating system. Just worth checking. Which mother board are you using. Need the number as there are hundreds of Gigabyte motherboards.

it's a 64 bit f2a68hm-hd2

BTW I appreciate your help

Have you tried each stick one at a time in both slots ?

Double check you are running windiws 64bit by going to Explorer - Right click This PC - select Properties for the list.

I've tried both of these things

There's not alot you can do if the slot itself is faulty I don't think it can be switched off in BIOS but worth a check
