Before I did anything the motherboard memory voltage was set to AUTO and it came out to be 1.87v. Upon bumping it up to 2.0v and 2.05v the system won't even get to the bios. I have to clear the CMOS just to get back to it.
*I just read that my old memory uses 2.2v so I think I'm going to manually bump it up to that and see how that goes.
Thanks for the reply!
(I can't settle for 7 gigs... although its a nice prime number. Things that aren't powers of two on computers freak me out.)
a similar problem. Same situation ie instaled Win 7, traded 4 x 1 gig DIMMS for 4 x 2 gig. Everything was fine at first but now won't boot after sitting overnight. Take out 1 DIMM and it seems to work fine. In the BIOS which voltage do I try to adjust? I'm kind of a novice at fooling with the BIOS
