Closed Vista freezes and lockups, and bsod? Tags: Asus Blue Screen Windows Vista Corsair Last response: June 6, 2010 6:29 PM in Windows Vista Share forrestfire11 September 14, 2008 11:21:49 PM Ok, so i recently rebuilt my computer and installed vista ultimate 32 bit, now it's crashing every few hours or freezing with bitcomet. I don't know what to do! Some BSOD's i've gotten are: IRQL_Less_than_or_equal Memory_management and something about a bad_header My specs are Q9550 Asus P5Q-E 4x2gigs Corsair xms2 1066mhz ram Asus 4870x2 corsair 750tx More about : vista freezes lockups bsod notherdude September 15, 2008 12:44:50 AM make sure the BIOS is giving the ram proper voltage, which appears to be 2.1v from a quick google. 4, 2 gig sticks, right? But this is vista 32 you say? 32 will not support more than 4 and you should not be seeing more than 3 with your set up. What gives? Sometime putting 4 sticks in a mobo entails a few non-standard tweaks - such as relaxing timings, reducing ram bus speed, and sometimes a slight voltage bump. Try 2. 1 v first, then if that does not fix it look into bus speed or timing adjustments.
