Apr 15, 2012, 2:44 AM
I dont know what is the problem but my OS, RAM or Mobo.
proc: i5 2500k
mobo: asus p8z68-v le
ram: corsair vengeance 8g (2x4g)
hdd: 3hdd = WD/SG/SG
current OS: win 7 ultimate 64bit
previously i have a win 7 ultimate 32bit. and all my games are good and running well.
i upgraded recently my mobo to asus p8z68-v le ram to corsair vengeance and processor to i5 2500k
after a clean installation.
i noticed that my browser continue to crash. and i cant install my old games like masseffect.
and 1 time a quick BSOD.. i keep on trying to install the games but it cant.

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.

run Memtest ( www.memtest.org ) 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.

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.
