@snowman 1989- I heard very similar stories like yours. Where did you get the OS from? MSDNAA? Was it RC1 beta? If it was MSDNAA, I would contact MS about it because it shouldn't have done something like that.

Hey fellow MSI K9N2 SLI Platinum users!

I am having trouble going from 4gigs of ram to 8 gigs of ram. I currently have 2 stick of 2gigs of the Patriot EP SLI ram (PC2-8500 1066mhz 5-5-5-15). I just bought another 4gigs to stick in there but my computer keeps crashing. Any ideas what I need to change in the BIOS to make it work? Any and all help would be great! thanx!!!!!

hey alex vw guy, are you using 4 matched or identical ram modules from the same manufucture. If not it could be a case of the mixed densities not cooperating w/each other. what are the ram voltages set at. maybe you could up the voltage a bit to see if that helps. If that don't do it then try to loosen up the ram timings a bit. Have you tried the new set of ram in the system w/out the old set to determine if the new set it good. Have you ran memtest86+ yet to make sure all the ram is good.

@Alex- What N2Gaming said is pretty much correct. Please use match memory sticks whenever possible, so that it you can rule out the problems. And welcome to this thread! I'll have your name on the list in the front page.
