Hello all.

A couple of dayes ago i bouth the following ram.

My motherboard is
and my CPU is P4 3.20 Ghz.

The first thing i would like to point out is that my Bios say i have 4gb ram but windows xp sp3 that i use say i only have 2gb ram.

To continue, even if trying default setting for the ram plus overclocking (i tried 6-6-6-18 at 1.8v) the result were same. System tottally unstable. Also, pc is freezing totally in opening screen, after starting it up, if lets say i have an external usb mass storage device like a hard disk.

I think must be a voltage thingie to fix.

Thanks a lot in advance

I'd try resetting the bios,
or running Memtest on each stick to see if they are good RAM. Even good companies occasionally let messed up sticks through.
