Ram problem

sorry this was put in another forum but no one could help i suppose i should have come to the pros first :)

ive just bought another 512mb stick of RAM and a usb2 port ever since then while playing soldier of fortune 2 it just drops back into windows. i have also installed the latest nvidia drivers and the the new direct x. i used to get the error once in a while ever since then but now im wondering what could be the problem
i have removed the usbport but still get the error the ram is seen by the computer and i think i have enough power to run just a bit unsure :P
its 2100 184pin DDR and the board was alrite with the first stick of ram so i dont see a problem
but moving the ram didnt work so the only thing i could think of was...
last time i had this prob, when i first got my new comp i had to up^ the dimm voltage control this is supposed to be in the bios control but on my board it is on the actual board with jumper switches on i think its on 2.6v atm (changed from 2.5v) if ure suggestion doesnt work shall i try that bumping it up to 2.7

More about problem
  1. Give us some more info about your machine.

    Memory timings, OS, AGP settings, etc.

    Man, you really like USB. Sometimes I have problems because of too many USB items. That could be a problem too. I'll wait for your response and I am sure someone else will chime in once you post some more stats about your setup.

  2. what OP system u running
  3. im using win xp pro but im not sure about the other stuff eg memory timing what the hell is that lol.

    agp is x4 i think im sure up^ing the dimm voltage would fix this thing cause its got the same symtoms as last time what would happen tho thats whats bothering me i dont wanna kill any part of my machine by overloading it.

    if its reversable i could just check it to see if it works
