2X 1gb RAM Gives Bluescreen, when ram is used!
hey there, this is my first post here, i hope someone will be able to help me =]
My problem is (I tracked it down) is that when i use two sticks of RAM (2 x 1GB elixir (Four slots in mobo, i use 1,3) My computer Boots, and runs my OS (Windows Vista premium) It reconises the two sticks.. (looked in computer properties) as 2044MB RAM...
But when i run a demanding game (HL2) or run my TV tuner card.. I get an instand Bluescreen of death, i think its called BSOD?
So i tested that each stick of ram works on its own in each of the slots, and they do, i ran the vista "memory diagnostics tool" on both of the single Slots of RAM in each slot.. and they worked fine, but when i run this tool with them both in it gives me an error, later followed by a blue screen of death. Both Sticks of RAM are the same, here is my computer specs:
