Hey guys.. I need help with my computer. As you know that I stated, my computer won't boot with 4gb of ram on my Windows 7 64-bit. My motherboard is an "Intel BOXDP43TF LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard" and the ram im using is "Crucial Ballistix 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model BL2KIT25664AA80A". Is this ram compatible with my motherboard or should I get new ram? Does anyone know whats a good ram that decent that can play games but mostly for internet and applications? Many thanks guys...

Compatibility should be OK. Do you get any specific error messages or beep codes on start-up? Have you tried booting with one stick of RAM at a time?

both ram works one at a time but can't dual it for some reason and it doesn't beep to the boot screen.. Should I just get a new pair of ram?

That was for 8gb total or 4 sticks of 2gb
for 4gb he needs 4 sticks of 1 gb
but I could be interpeting it wrong!
from site-
"Up to 2.0 GB utilizing 256 Mb technology
Up to 4.0 GB utilizing 512 Mb or 1 Gb technology
Up to 8.0 GB utilizing 1 Gb technology"

Use the link I supplied and pick something from the recommended memory list.
If the memory you purchased was inexpensive you could buy 2 more and give it a try, however checking the crucial web site the ram you have is 2.0v and the recomended is 1.8v (could be the problem)

Probably memory voltages and timings need changed from the default.
