I recently purchased 1gb A-data ddr2 ram module to add to my pc which already had two modules of trancend ddr2 800..the problem is when i connected the a data module i started getting lot of BSODS and my computer crashed lot of times. I guessed it was software problem and re formated it still the problem remained till i removed the a data module. What can i do to solve this incompatibility?

My system specs
phenom 9650
2gb ddr2 800
350+160 Gb hdd
Ati 4850
creative xtreme audio

Try relaxing the memory timing and raising the RAM voltage .1 or .2 volts. If that doesn't work, I guess you are stuck with 2 GB of RAM.

Maybe you can find some more of the Transcend RAM.
