Default System Crashes

Ever since i installed my new 780i Nforce MoBo i have been getting reoccurring Blue Screens of Death. I am going to try to update the BIOS, but is this a common problem with the 780i? Also during an install of Vista can having 4gigs installed cause the dreaded BSOD?

try taking out 2gb's, setting timings and stuff, and then popping the other 2 in. i've heard that works for some.

Bsod

Isnt this the same EXACT thing. Please stop creating new threads for the same questions. That is considered spamming.

Yes having 4GB of RAM install during a Vista install can cause this. Espically with 32 Bit which can not even use 4GB of RAM in the first place.

Closing this topic as there is already one open.
