4GB ram random BSOD

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I just got a set of 2GBx2 Crucial Ballistic ddr2-800. I am running into random BSOD's. When I remove one of the sticks everything is fine. I have ran memtest and tried swapping the ram around and even single channel mode. I have also ran the memory auto settings vs 4-4-4-12-t2. I also have sp1 and the latest vista updates. I am using vista 64 as well. Please help

Does your motherboard support remapping of memory above 3G?

I haven't noticed that setting in the bios, but I will take another look.

It might be labeled as PCI Memory Remap, but it usually has the keyword remap or mapping somewhere in there.

I did not see an option that resembled remapping of memory. I went ahead and reinstalled the memory hotfix from microsoft, and I'm currently running the 4 gigs. I'm going to restart now and see if it's actually fixed or just tricking me.

I have the same exact problem. Its either your Mobo or your RAM. I have to go back to SD-RAM :


Let me guess it freezes right? Whats the error message which comes up. There are several messages.

Why are you coughing, did linux give you something lol.

Hes not asking about linux, hes trying to solve a issue that isnt even related to linux.

Anyways try raising the volts a tad and see what happens. Lots of times some mobos dont give all the voltage it says it gives and that is why you could be crashing. ALso you may try raising the VMCH a bit as it does stress the NB more then with 2 gigs.
