I RECENTLY BOUGHT A 1600MHz RAM 4GB DDR3 FOR MY DESKTOP BUT LATER I FOUND OUT MY MOTHERBOARD ONLY SUPPORTS 1066/1333 MHz DDR3 RAM. WILL DIS NEW RAM WORK WITHOUT NE PROBLEM???

Best solution

yeah, it can most likely be downclocked to 1333mhz.
give us the model of both ram and mobo and i'll confirm.

:hello:  Welcome to the forums.

First, a note about forum netiquette: We consider all caps to be shouting and it is very rude.

Like slicedtoad said, you should be able to downclock the RAM and it should work. But here is why we need the motherboard and RAM details: motherboard makers publish a QVL (Qualified Vendor List) of memory that has been tested to work with that particular motherboard. That is the good news. The sort of bad news is that if a particular memory doesn't appear on the QVL, it doesn't mean that the memory will not work. It may just mean that the memory wasn't tested.

But generally, if you find similar models of the same brand on the QVL, what you have should work.

thanx for the reply...
i checked d bios n its showing me d ram frequency as 1333MHz... so i guess it has automatically downgraded d ram clock frequency... nw ders a new issue i got a graphics card successfully installed it wid all d drivers but nw every tym i start my pc it says dumping physical memory... it will dump physical memory 2-3 times n den boot to safe mode or it will very rarely boot normally... wen i removed my graphics card d pc works f9... no memory dumping... i restarted it a hundred times n it booted just f9... den i again inserted d graphics card n i got d same message 'dumping physical memory'. i downloaded d latest drivers for my graphics card but still d problem persists..

by "dump physical memory" do you mean it displays a blue screen with an error message and says "dumping physical memory" at the bottom?

What psu do you have?

... Haven't seen that before. Unless someone else has another idea, here's what i'd do:

-uninstall and driversweep (download the program called driversweeper). Then reinstall the newest drivers.

-rma the card or contact galaxy.

edit:
does it run fine when it does start up?
