Vista 64 bule screens with 4Gigz of ram, okay with 2Gigz

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I can boot up no problem with 2 gigz of ram but it crashes when I try to move up to 4 gigz, any ideas?

I have 4Gigz of ram (2x2Gigz)
I have windows vista 64 (Just installed)
I have a EVGA 780i motherboard
I flashed my bios with the newest stuff availble (nf78 p04)
I've installed the latest drivers for my motherboard

Pull 2 Gbs out and install the vista 64 fix on M$ website to get 4Gbs to work. Then shutdown and reinstall the other 2 Gs of ram.
