You shouldn't turn up RAM voltage.
You shouldn't be mixing different memory modules.
You should be using memory in the evens 2,4,8, etc.
Memory should all be the same frequency/voltage/timings too.

Why do you want 4GB+ ram for that PC, it shouldn't help you for that system.

Oh okay thanks for ur info, Never thought about all of the RAM needing to be the very same.
I was getting ready to update my graphic card. i figured more RAM would help.
And you say it should be "in the evens 2,4,8, etc." I've bought many new computers and they would come with 3GB of ram, lol
