New Build Memory Issues; Blue screen

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I recently built a new computer, its the first one ive ever done. Here is my original build

AMD 1090T X6
ASUS Crosshair IV Formula
Windows 7 Ultimate 64
AVEXIR Standard Series 8GB (4GB x2) DDR3 1600MHz 9-9-9-24


Everything was successful with that build, I had some extra money, and decided to fill the remaining RAM slots with 2 more sticks of the exact ram that was currently running.

After installation of the second set of ram the boot up was successful, and windows located the full 16gb of ram, but after about 5 minutes, I got a blue screen, and a forced restart. i swapped the locations for the new/original sticks (a1/b1 for a2/b2) and restarted again and got another full startup with a blue screen a few minutes in.

I ran the microsoft Memory diagnostic, which stated that there was a hardware issue (it found it within the first couple seconds of running the test) and then it stated that it was going to restart after the test and display my results, it restarted but never displayed results.

I removed the new 8gb ram and went back to original setup, and everything is fine again.

I do plan on doing music production, and although 16 gb is probably overkill, I'd still like to have it in there if possible.

ANY THOUGHTS???

I'm very uneducated on computer lingo, so please go easy on me!!!

THANKS!!

Seems to be memory related as you have suspected. For further analysis you can download and create a boot up disk of Memtest86+. Boot up with it and use the bad modules ( unplug the good ones) and the test will verify the source of the prob. You can send the bad modules back and get replacements.

Hi,

Either your board doesnt like the ram, or u have a bad stick or two

I'm currently running mixed ram in my sig rig:
2x4gb gskill + 2x2gb OCZ = 12gb and everything is fine so far.

A few weeks later, I picked up 2x2gb of Corsair XMS3 for dirt cheap, so i decided to swap out the OCZ's in my pc for the Corsairs(their heatsinks looked cooler). Only problem with having the Corsairs in my mobo, the computer would not boot. I put the OCZ ram back in, and everything works. Tested the corsair xms in another pc, and it worked fine

I have no experience or knowledge base of Memtest86+. Is that a pre-installed MS program, or a 3rd party program?

Its a third party program designed to diagnose memory issues. It is like the microsoft Memory diagnostic tool you have used before, but only better.
You have to download the iso file from its website--> http://www.memtest.org/#downiso
use nero to burn it as a bootable cd rom. now boot from it just like one uses the windows cd/dvd. you can also use it from a bootable pen drive. Its better to build and keep a bootable cd cause it may come in handy in the future. In NERO an image file can be burnt by choosing "BURN IMAGE" in the Recorder menu.

Update: I worked with an 8gb configuration (2x4gb) using the newly purchased ram only.

the system boots up successfully, and is stable while in A2/B2 slots, but will not even POST when in A1/B1.

Did you ever find a solution that let you be able to use the red slots (A1/B1)??? Seems odd that I could have to settle with just leaving the red slots empty.

Raise your RAM volt. a little bit, and will work in the red slots too.

BIOS --> DRAM(or RAM) Voltage, use +/- keys and set the voltage(check the RAM sticker for voltage)
