Ram problem, bootfreeze


My computer freezes in boot screen precicely after bios has counted the ram (says: 8125mb OK).

The only way to get it to boot properly all the way to windows is by shutting off the psu and removing 1 of my 4 ddr2 modules and put it back again. After i shut it down i have to redo the procudure.

I have tried ever memory spearatly and they all see to work fine in memtest.

No clue what the problem might be :( It has worked fine for 4 years.

P5Q-E motherboard
4 x 2Gb Corsair 1066Mhz DDR2
Intel Quad-Core Q9550@2.83GHz OC to 3.4GHz
ATI Radeon HD4870 1Gb

  1. Replace the cmos battery. It might be empty and so the mobo is loosing the config info.
  2. Problem solved, apparently it was the windows 7 os how made the fuss, weird that the computer froze during bootscreen :P. Had som other problems with it so I did a clean install and the "ram" problem was gone :)

    Thnx for the reply anyways and good look
