Boot failure because of overclocking? (never overclocked)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've had some problems while booting up my computer lately. Sometimes I'll log in but then I get a black screen that only shows my cursor. Then today I booted it up and got a boot failure because of overclocking. It works after restarting again but it's rather concerning. I've never overclocked my computer as of yet. The only explanation would be the new memory I put in. I put the two new ones in the other memory slots from the one's I had before because my cpu fan was in the way. Anyone have any ideas on what's happening?

I used have these: CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX4GX3M2A1600C9
Now I have these: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

Set your overclock back to stock clocks and then try booting again.

I never overclocked it though.

Sorry, I misread!

Try putting only one RAM module at a time.
