Booting with higher voltage memory.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've read about people having trouble getting into their bios after installing new ram because the ram needs more voltage than the motherboard provides at default. I could be misreading about the problem, but since I'm going to buy new ram soon what would I have to do if I couldn't even get into the bios because of my new ram?Hmm, sorry if this should be in the intel memory forum, but it kinda relates to both.

Just throwing this out there.... you could raise the voltage with your current ram, and then turn off your PC real fast...the ram wouldn't have time to overheat, and your new ram will be ready to pop in!

Unless your ram instantly fries....or maybe the settings will reset? But it's an idea
