Major MSOD with 4GB in Vista Premium

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello all.

Here is my problem.

I built the rig outlined in my profile.

I installed Vista64x Premium OEM on this system and I was getting a ton of BSOD with 4GB of ram. I took 2GB out and ran only 2 GB and no BSOD. Soo...i looked around and saw many remedies for this problem. I installed SP1 (it didnt come pre-installed) and even spereately downloaded and installed the hotfix everyone is talking about. NO LUCK!!

I changed voltages...now up to 2.075 (as high as I can push them without getting a no boot)
I manually set timings...
I upped NB voltage...
STILL GET BSOD with 4GB RAM.

I really need some help on this one...because I really want to run 4GB...this problem is very perplexing...as non of the fixes others have suggested work.

Is there a BIOS setting I am missing somewhere or what?? Please help!

Any and all help is much appreciated!!

I forgot to mention above that I have already tried both sticks in all slots and they both work fine.

Reread your OP.

Make sure you don't install the other 2 gigs until after the hotfix has been applied.

should the hotfix fix this problem???? I already installed it and it hasnt done anything. Could it be that I installed the hotfix and then installed SP1 without uninstalling the hotfix first. Since the hotfix is included in sp1...Its basically installed twice...could that be it??

Probably not because its just replacing files. What I would do since you just installed windows i assume is reformat. Reformat the whole hard drive and do a fresh install of Vista with 2gb then JUST install SP1 then shut down replace other 2gb stick and try again...

If this doesn't work, you may have a bad slot. Also, what slots are you installing the stick into? Is it the very first 2 on the left when the board is in the case? If so you have it in the wrong slots. The sticks need to be in the first and third slots because that is how dual channel RAM is installed.

It should still work in the first 2 slots but it wont be running in dual channel which is how your RAM is set up for.

Make sure you only have 2 GB installed.

Run the hotfix, turn off and install 4GB.
