Default SLI-Ready Memory- Not Detected

Last night i came home and turned my computer on then BAM, it immediately went into the BIOS, and near the bottom of the screen it said
"SLI-Ready Memory- Not Detected", I was a little shocked because i have never seen this before, i could not get pass the bios either. I did some research and discovered this is a memory/RAM problem, but i found no way as to solving it. I reset the CMOS and tried booting the computer with 1 stick of ram in various slots. Also, i could not touch the memory options in the bios because it says it is not detected.
System specs:
Mobo: EVGA nForce 780i
RAM: TWIN2X2048-6400C5DHX http://corsair.com/products/xms2dhx/default.aspx
CPU: Intel Q6600
Video Card: Evga 8800 GT
OS: Vista 32-bit
PSU: Thermal make 600w

Any help is greatly appreciated big pain in the ass at the moment

I don't know, maybe he meant use different RAM, because the computer obviously won't boot without RAM installed, thus the beep, the link to the RAM doesn't mention it being SLI certified, so I guess it's not really "guaranteed" to work with SLI systems, it may work in some cases and may not in others, your case may be one of the "others"...

It could be very likely the memory up and died. Unusual, but likely. Try testing the memory with a little program called Memtest86+.

Yea, I guess that would be a problem. . .

I didn't think that far ahead and was figuring that you could boot to a CD.


Do you have any spare sticks of memory you can try in that system?
