OK.. so i've had my computer for 2 years.. or year and a half.. and i think i've been running on half speed this whole time for my ram.. i have a motherboard which only has 3 slots for ram.. i have no idea on how to fix the speed... here is my specs on cpu-z and btw the ram was bought the same time and are the same brand and speed. IDENTICAL.
I start with one ram and put it in the ddr slot 1. It works with 200mhz speed
I take it out and put my other 512 ram in and same thing. works with 200mhz speed.
I stick both rams in, in ddr slot 1 and ddr slot 2. My computer hits a blue screen of death and restarts before i can even read the error. It loads windows but when it hits the desktop it stops responding.
I stick both rams in, in ddr slot 1 and ddr slot 3. Computer cant load windows.
I stick both rams in ddr slot 2 and 3. This comes up on CPU-Z:
Have I been missing out on half of my RAM? I really would appreciate a solution.
