i have had terrible trouble with my computer crashing and blue screening,
im sure it is my ram cause the memory warning light keeps coming on and a lot of the time it wont boot,
i got in working in the end by taking out 1 strip and with 1,
im not sure if it is defective or just more sensetive to the increased voltage than the other strip, as the one i took out will not work on its own ive tried both,
thanks for reading

Without more info, all I can advise is to go into the bios and try some manual settings. You can also run memtest, a free download, if you can get one stick running stable.

hi again i ran memtest and the memory is fine at 1.5v, not sure why my bios set it to 1.65v,

ive been getting high memory usage warnings though from nortan,
i went into resource manager and out of 4gb i only have 500mb free,
1026mb is hardware reserved and i have no idea what it is reserved for,
or how to change it, please help
