Ok I have an GT5412 Gateway. It came with 2 gigs of ram. I added 2 more gigs of ram.
When i boot comp it may run several minutes then goes to blue screen with 'page fault' or 'memory management' error and quickly reboots to safe mode. In safe mode i notice it recognizes the added memory, and runs fine while in safe mode (nothing has melted ;) )
I removed the older ram and placed new ram into the first bank... it runs fine. Old ram does same thing i bank 2.
Someone mentioned upgrading the BIOS. I searched Gateway but they havent had an upgrade for BIOS.
Is there a setting causing conflict between the two banks or is my motherboard toast?
