What is the probability I have bad ram??? Tags: Memory RAM OCZ Windows Vista Last response: October 3, 2007 2:47 AM in Memory Share fretman October 3, 2007 1:20:58 AM I'm running PC2-6400 OCZ Vista upgrade ram on my P5KC mobo. The ram is rated at 800mhz. However, I cannot get my system to boot when my DRAM Frequency is set at DDR2-800. I've talked with OCZ and tried all recommendations listed on their site as well as feedback from other users. Tonight I did one last test. I have 2x2gig sticks. I tested each stick individually on all 4 DDR2 slots. I was not able to get the machine to boot. Therefore, can I rule out with great probability that it's not a problem with the ram? And that it's just a question of compatibility with the board? OCZ is asking me to RMA the ram but then I'll be out of a machine for I don't know how long. Thanks for the feedback.

You can make sure the voltage is set what the ram is meant to run at. fretman October 3, 2007 2:28:06 AM Yup...I tried the recommended voltage and nothing worked. Thanks for the help.

Then the fan spins louder and the system hangs while the fan is spinning. I need to manually shut the system down. Upon next power up, the system boots and gives me an OC'ing error.
