that ram is rated to run at 1.9-2.0v, make sure you have the correct voltage selected in your bios, or else that could cause the BSODs
You should attempt to boot with one stick at a time to see if one stick is bad. Unfortunately one bad stick is not uncommon. Don't know alot about Evo, never tried their products. When I've seen reviews of their products, they seem to be middle of the pack performance-wise with a high end price.
I am very happy with OCZ.
ONE NOTE: I noticed on the motherboard page you posted that it says it is compatible with 4gb ram on 32 bit OS, and 8 GB with a 64 bit OS.
Yes Vista 64 bit. I havent checked the voltage out yet but will in a minute if it is that can I 1.) change it on an HP ( this isnt a custom built or anything 2.) If I can is it safe for my mother board and everything?
I will go with the memory voltage being the problem...... JDEC specifications for DDR2 is 1.8V standard. The memory that you have installed is rated for 1.9 to 2.0 volts.... If you cannot change the voltage in the bios then you got yourself some great conversation pieces as your system probably will not be able to use them.
i have no idea where to find the voltage for memory in my bios i really cant look at much im my hp and im sure i can't change anything.. damn.
the mobo page says to hit f10 to enter bios at boot. Memory voltage probably under advanced settings or some such
Unless increasing voltage above 2.1 volts on ram I wouldn't worry about damage to the mobo
i looked every where cant find it.
brewski09, if you have an HP, you most likely can't increase the voltage. Just get RAM that runs at 1.8V and you'll be fine.
