Default Dual Channel Memory problem

so i had an 512 and a 1 gb of ram, and they both were pc2 5300, so i went out today and got another 512 and 1 gb of ram.
when i try dual channeling all of them, my computer wont start, not even a post beep. when i try the 2 512 together, it was still single channel and it only showed 512, when i try dual channeling both the 1 gb, all i get is just doing long beeps.
all rams work with single channel.
i have an DFI infinity NF ultra II M2 motherboard with an amd 64 X2 4400+.
any help?

Do you have the two 512's in one color slot, and the 2 1 gigs in the other color?

Try each stick one-by-one, you may have a bad stick of RAM.

Does your motherboard support that much RAM?

Hmm. . . Try clearing your BIOS. I had a similar problem when adding another gig to my comp. It just wouldn't boot until after I cleared it.

Your manual should show the location of the CMOS jumper and how to clear the BIOS. You just unplug your comp and switch the jumper on the pins for 30 seconds to a minute, then switch it back over. Or you could just remove the CMOS battery for the same amount of time. That will reset the BIOS to it's default settings.
