Here is a problem Ive never had before with a computer.
My computer is a hp pavilion a6500
Intel Pentium e220 dual cpu 2.4ghz
2x2048mb ram sticks (only 2 ports)
came with vista but i put xp on it
1gb video memory
Ok so here was the issue. The computer crashed whenever i used larger programs or 45mins ish (whichever came first). I did the usual tests and even reformatted just incase it was software. The problem persisted. So after a while I came up with the idea to try the ram 1 at a time. In the left port the ram works however the right port they dont.
Ill also note computer worked since day 1 with both chips.
So heres the question:
Does anyone have any ideas on getting the other port working?
Im thinking 2 possibilities exist:
A) port is broken
B) for some reason these chips wont work together nemore
O and here is the ram stick details:
2x 2gb 2rx8 PC2-6400U-666-12
made by Hynix
PS: I just want my 4gb back :)
