Solved Upgrading RAM to 1x8GB DDR3 1600 Mhz resulting in BSOD. How to fix it? Tags: Overclocking RAM Memory Corsair Blue Screen Last response: May 15, 2013 3:10 PM in Memory Share dpdsbd May 15, 2013 2:49:06 PM Hey guys! I've recently bought 1x8GB RAM from Corsair (CMSO8GX3M1A1600C11 - http://www.corsair.com/us/corsair-memory-8gb-1-x-8gb-dd...) to put it into my Acer Aspire 5741G. Technically, I should be able to put upto 8GB into it so everything should work find. After putting it in, 8gb normally shows in BIOS, everything goes ok just until Win7 starts to load. After few seconds, I get BSOD. Win7 recovery mode also results in BSOD. I also tried the same memory on Samsung NP-R580-JS04PL - with same results - BSOD everywhere. Motherboards should accept up to 8GB - tested 2x4GB 1600Mhz Kingston sticks on both machines with no problems whatsoever. What might be the problem here? Faulty memory? Incompatibility? Bad voltage (impossible to tinker with voltages as both machines are overclockingproof)? Any help is highly appreciated! EDIT: Just to clarify - both BIOS are up-to-date and I've tried googling it with luck More about : upgrading ram 1x8gb ddr3 1600 mhz resulting bsod fix Best solution funguseater May 15, 2013 3:00:34 PM Hi, 8GB is the max for 2 SoDimms, 4GB each, sorry.

Share littleleo May 15, 2013 3:10:18 PM fungus is right you take the max RAM and divide it by the number of memory slots and that is the max you can put in each slot. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
