Problem with build. Tags: Build Windows 7 Systems Product Last response: November 25, 2012 7:02 PM in Systems Share sin25 November 25, 2012 9:50:15 AM Ok. So everything seems to work at least until I install windows 7. I've tried installing windows 7 multiple times and even re-downloading, burning, new copies on my pc and my friends. The end result is always the same. Once installation is finished and it goes for that last restart, it eventually freezes on the loading screen. Now I have been able to install it and make the pc boot up. But it only works when I remove one of the 2 sticks of RAM?It doesn't work when I add the other stick of ram. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/o50h http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... So those 2 links contain everything inside this build with the exception of the video card that I have yet to receive. Any suggestions on what to try? Bios is up to date with the latest version too. Thanks. Edit: PC also seems to restart when I click shutdown from the start menu.

Think thats a pretty good sign you have a dead RAM stick. m 0 l sin25 November 25, 2012 3:13:35 PM Any way I can test this?

That should help you figure out which stick is the problem. m 0 l sin25 November 25, 2012 4:21:04 PM Well I just tried booting up with my friends ram and it causes the same problems. Is it possible that it's the motherboard that's the problem? m 0 l manofchalk a b $ Windows 7 November 25, 2012 7:02:19 PM Although rarer, it is possible that the RAM slot itself is broken. Try running the sticks in every combination of the slots possible to test for this. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
