Default RAM problem... sorry it may be a repeating thread.

Hello there my old computer was getting pretty dull because it always slows down when i try multitasking so i had to upgrade my computer.

Yesterday the list for my upgrades was a new MOBO, RAM and Processor.

I started assembling them all with a reformatted HDD and my old RAM and IDE devices.

When I tried to install the OS it was ok at about 30% of the installation process and then BAM! There was the blue screen.

Then i tried to re-install the OS with only the newer RAM in it. then there it was again.

Then i tried with my old RAM only and it worked!

So i went to the manufacturer and tried to swap it but those technician guys told me it was working properly... Wha!!? i said .. they said they tested it and they said it worked..

OK... Ok... maybe it was only all in my mind i said to myself but it turned out the problem was there again when i tried to re-install the OS again...

Tell me what is the real deal about this cuz i cant work with a flawed RAm...

Here's my specs...

Intel945GZ intel MOBO
New Ram: 512mb 533mhz
old ram: 256 mb 533mhz
1.86 Core 2 Duo
160 GB seagate

Default Re: RAM problem... sorry it may be a repeating thread.

Can you install the OS with the old RAM, then shut down and install the new RAM and it boot? If not, you need to download Memtest and run it on each stick individually.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.
