What Happened? 3rd stick of ram causing pc to think OC?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was in the middle of watching a youtube vid when my PC froze up, again..

I restarted, and it wouldn't post and was stuck in a boot loop i guess you would call it?

Removed all but 1 stick of ram, boot just fine. Added second stick, booted fine as well. Added 3rd stick, no post.

After removing the 3rd stick and going back to 2, on post screen I got a red message saying the previous OC attempt had failed.

What on earth would cause this all of the sudden, im guessing the 3rd mem slot on the MOBO went to crap? And yes, I did switch the ram sticks to see if a specific stick was causing the issue..

Ok, so I started putting one stick in and booting and shutting down, adding another, so on and so forth and have the rig up and running with all 6gb again. I would still like to know what happened to cause this issue? Thanks
