Answers :

It should read both modules without resetting or making changes to the BIOS.
\015\012
\015\012It is likely one of the following is true:
\015\012
\015\0121. One of the modules has an incompatible speed or defective which means it won't work in your system.
\015\0122. The two modules are different speeds and won't work together.
\015\012
\015\012Try removing both modules and install the module that you had in DIMM B in DIMM A. If it doesn't work #1 is the situation. If it does work then it is likely that #2 is the situation.
