    you only need x64 bit windows when using more than 4GB of ram. So that might be the problem...though in theory it should still work

    well windows only shows what is usable. say, if you had 2x (1GB) plus a single 2GB ram stick = 4GB, this will only read each stick as the lowest installed (which would read it as 1GB 1GB 1GB = 3GB. is this the case, or do you have 2x 2GB sticks
  4. I have only 2x2gb
  5. What motherboard?
    This happens on a CLEAN OS install?

    I had Win8 X86 on 4gb and decided to instal X64.Then it all crashed.I let only 2Gb and it worked fine.If I put 4gb it stucks.
    Motherboard Name MSI G31M3-F (MS-7528)
