Hi All,
I added 4 * 2 GB RAM (pc6400 ddr2 800mhz) to My Compaq Presario SR5260AN Desktop PC and I am getting Reference pointer blue screen error. When I remove any one of the RAM from any one of the slot The system works fine. Please help.

Thanks
Ram

I think you meant you installed 4 x 2GB for a total of 8GB. Most motherboards require additional voltage to be supplied to the DIMM slots, when all four slots are occupied. However, most prebuilt systems won't allow you to alter the required BIOS settings.

If you added DRAM to existing DRAM they may well not be compatible, generally this can be stabilized with voltage or timing adjustments, sadly most prebuilts don;'t allow for those adjustments, might check and see if your's does, but have doubts
