Low-profile (half-height) memory modules can cause any of the following symptoms:
- System is unable to boot (stuck at POST code E0, 27, or 2E)
- System displays intermittent lock up issues in the operating system if left unattended
- System randomly reboots itself
Intel has discovered that there is a marginality issue between Intel® Desktop Boards and certain low-profile DIMMs, causing the observed issues above.
