and replaced my old: 2x Elixir - 1GB DDR2 PC6400 800MHz 1. Part - Pin DIMM
My motherboard is: ASUS P5N-E/SLI nForce 650i S-775 which from what I gathered should be compatible with the new ram.
But after installing them, without any problems I thought. I've begun to get random crashes in windows, sometimes when I aint even doing nothing. I get a blue screen with too much info to read before it restarts, but says something about if I have added new hardware recently that might be the course of failure.
I was hoping to get some advice on whether this is compatabillity problem or corrupted RAM. I should note, that I'm far from a computer xpert. So if you would please explain it in an easy way, it would be really appreciated. Just ask if you need more info!
If you are a novice, why did you buy performance RAM? I'm not familiar with your motherboard, but you have to press Del to enter the BIOS. You should see AI Tweaker (I'm not sure with your motherboard, but you can check your manual). Select it to see what your settings are. If need be, set the DRAM timing control to manual. What are the first 4 entries? 4, 4, 4 and 12? What's the DRAM voltage?
