  1. This topic has been moved from the section Other Consumer Electronics to section Windows 7 by Pyree
  2. ohh.. sorry pyree if i post it on the wrong section.

    btw the error that im getting when i try to install the games and other applications including flash and directx is "Source data is corrupt"

    now that i used 1 stick of ram(4gb). seems to working fine. how can i maximize the 8bg ram that i have its not broken because pc still opens when the 2 sticks were inserted.
  3. :D Have you worked this out?
  4. not yet really im only using 1 stick of ram. and it works but when i put the 2nd ram to make it 8gb of ram, im starting having troubles with crashing application..
  5. run Memtest ( ) or BETTER YET:

    Read your motherboard manual to ensure you are putting the RAM in the correct slots. There's a recommended slot for single and for dual sticks.

    So boot to MEMTEST and test the following scenarios:

    1) Stick#1 by itself
    2) Stick#2 by itself
    3) BOTH STICKS together (don't bother if one of the sticks fail)

    We can't continue troubleshooting until we sort this out.
  6. stick #1 ur ram does not allocate memory correctly.
    stick #2 ok.
    both sticks same error as #1.

    so stick #2 is the one im currently using.
  7. i'm noob at this.

    any harsh comment is welcome as long as you can educate me with my problem. thanks in advance.
  8. ok! i got it resloved! bring it back to supplier before 1 week for replacement. :)
  9. Cool!
