|Hello everyone, first off let me tell you the default specs of my system. My System is the Acer Aspire M3641|
This comes with,;
Intel® Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor
2.40GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 8MB Cache
Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium
4GB DDR2 667MHz memory
640GB SATA hard drive (7200rpm)
When i first bought the PC i instantly slotted in a Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT (512mb) to meet my gaming needs.
The PC ran fine up untill now (1 1/2 years later) when i started getting allot of BSOD's which where constantly problems hinting towards bad memory.
So i decided to upgrade to Windows 7 as well as well as buy some new RAM (2x2GB) to solve the BSOD issue.
The RAM i got can be found here;
It's basically the "CORSAIR CGMT2X4G800".
So ready to install Windows 7 i replaced the old RAM with my new RAM. With both sticks of the new RAM in place my PC just would not boot it would just stay at the ACER start up screen and my mouse and keyboard would show no responce, however there is activity within the case.
So i removed one stick which left one stick of the new RAM remaining and my PC ran perfectly fine. So i installed Windows 7 with just one stick of the new RAM.
I have tried both sticks of the new RAM seperatly in all slots and the PC works fine, it's only when i boot up with both sticks of RAM in that it doesn't work.
However i got my old RAM which is dying and replaced my new ram with the old one which is also (2x2GB) and the PC ran fine for a while with 4GB of memory and then i got a BSOD which was expected.
So why isn't my PC able to boot up with both sticks of my new (2x2GB) and only booting up with one?
