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. forrestfire11 September 15, 2008 2:03:02 AM i meant 2, 2gig sticks, my bad. but i'll try to mess with that voltage. as well, bitcomet seems to make my computer freeze up, only solution is to restart, this usually happens when i leave it to download for a while. oh and one more thing, if anyone has been playing warhammer online, it seems to crash to desktop alot Can't find your answer ?

A quick test of the '4 sticks of ram problem' is to just take out two of them and see if you still have problems. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
