Ok...so my ram is stuck in slots 1 and 3.. i was able to run prime 95 no problem for about 12 hours before i needed the computer for something so i had to shut it of... I havent tried playing a game yet tho.
Both my sticks of ram are made by Ultra (im wishing i would have got kingston or corsair instead ::rolls eyes:: ) and both are pc3200. And i know for a fact that my mobo supports that type.
And as for the programming of the games... I guess i dont really know. The first time it locked up 4 months ago it was during Madden 2005. Yesterday it was during Battlefield 1942. One game i havent had lock up yet, tho, has been NFS Underground 2. So i dont know. Its all just frustrating. Maybe someday in the future ill have the money to drop on an Alienware
