I was wondering if you could assist me with a problem I'm having.
My computer originally had (2x2GB=)4GB of RAM.
Since day one I've gotten all sorts of memory-related BSOD. As a somewhat-beginner with hardware, I realized that the RAM was bad.
I took out one of the sticks and BSODs were gone for quite some time. I'm still getting some, but not as often as I did when the second one was attached. I ran several tests, including "Windows Memory Diagnostic" and it detected a hardware problem.
BSOD were mainly: Bad Pool Header, Memory Management, IRQL Not less or equal.
So I decided to purchase a new RAM. And instead of purchasing 2GB stick, I decided to buy just one 4GB. When I installed the RAM, the computer refused to boot up. It beeped three times and continued to do that over and over. I'm guessing it's RAM incompatibility. But I'm pretty sure I bought the right one. Could you please help me?
Motherboard: DG43RK (Click to access official page)
Original RAM: 2 sticks of "Infinity" DDRIII1333 2GB CL9
RAM I bought: 1 stick of 4GB Kingston KVR1333D3N9/4G.
Is it the wrong RAM? :\
Another guess is that there's a problem with installing a 4GB stick of RAM instead of 2 of 2GB?
Is this somehow related?
Thanks for your help!
