  1. May need some extra voltage to the NorthBridge, and the DRAM voltage, you've gone to 4GB sticks, what model # of mobo and what model # of the PNYs
  2. I already have the extra power supply and my mobo # is 2A8C, Ram type is DDR3
  3. Only thing I came up with on 2A8C indicates a Foxconn laptop mobo
  4. my is wolfdale e5400, i dont even see it on the foxcon support website
  5. If this is an older dell or hp and you bought ddr3, it could be your m/b uses ddr2. That would certainly cause a crash. Hopefully you didn't try to force the new memory in - ddr3 and ddr2 are keyed differently.

    What is the make and model of your pc?

    That's your CPU, need a motherboard make and model
  7. sorry, i keep mistaken those 2, My is indeed foxconn with a intel G14 chip

    it's compatible
  9. Foxconn 2A8C Motherboard RAM Specifications:

    Memory
    2 * 240-pin DDR3 DIMM slots Supports Dual Channel DDR3 1333/1066/800 MHz non-ECC, un-buffered memory (Max 4GB)

    Based on this information you need to adjust the BIOS RAM frequency setting to equal the RAM frequency which you can identify here:

    Apparently the motherboard supports up to 4GB and you're running 8GB?.. is the full 8GB being recognized?

    Good!.. then my suggestion should work on the RAM frequency (may be up to 1333Mhz)... the video card problem may be related to outdated drivers, or RAM or video card losely fitted on the slots.
  12. well, the ram and graphic card is fitted, but the frequency setting is locked on this pc so it should be on auto. All i can do now is wait for it to auto configure or buy a new computer. However, thank you for your help, i appreciated it a lot
  13. You need to reset the BIOS for the Auto detection and frequency configuration to take over....

    Remove the BIOS battery and wait 10 minutes before reinstalling it...

    Also update the Graphics drivers.... even if they are reasonably updated they may need to be refreshed due to corruption, infection, etc.
