Corsair Vengeance CL9 1600 issue

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I bought some Corsair Vengeance ram and I keep getting "light blue blank screens" and I have to press my reset button for the PC to start back up.

I'm using the Timings: 9-9-9-24 @ 1600Mhz

Before the Corsair ram I had some G.Skill Ripjaws using 8-8-8-24 Timings @ 1600Mhz and they worked fine with no issues.

If anyone knows what could be causing the problem please let me know thanks.

I'd suggest running Memtest86+ from a floppy, CD or flash drive to check the new RAM for errors. I'm not sure that the new RAM could cause just "light blue blank screens" but stranger things have been known to happen. biggrin.gif

You may also want to reseat your RAM and GPU cards to make sure there isn't some slot connection issue. Also be sure that your video cable is fully seated in the GPU card port and monitor.
