New RAM keeps crashing my system
Hi could any1 please help me, i would really appreatiate some help.
About 5 weeks ago i bought a custom built computer and in that machine i had 2 sticks of 256 ram.
All my games and apps were running fine and problem free apart from being a little choppy, so i decided to get some more ram and boost it up to 1gig.
I took the 2 sticks of 256 back a got myself 2 sticks of 512... I was recommended to do this instead of just getting another 2 sticks of 256.
Well the problem now is that every game i try to play it dose 1 of 3 things,
1, Run's for a few minutes then crash back to desktop
2, Run's for a few minutes then crash the whole system
3, Run's for a while then crash to a blue screen with white writing and restarts.
(when the game dose run, it runs smooth as hell unlike the when it had 2x256)
Dose any1 know what the problem might be?
I thought it could have been compatibility so i took it back to the store and bought some more expensive ram (that was recommended to me).
Here is what i got:
1st i bought 2 x OCZ 512 DDR PC3200 Value Series.
Then i bought 2 x OCZ 512 EL DDR PC3200 Dual Channel Kit Gold Series
Please please can sum1 help me, im getting soooo frustrated.
