However, ever since I did that I have A.) not seen a significant increase in the speed sadly, and B.) been having all kinds of issues with my computer that I wasn't having before.
Twice I've gotten the blue screen of death once with PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA 0x00000050 error and once with a IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL 0x0000000a error. Both occured when I was just copying and pasting text. Programs have been mysteriously crashing and not working right. Like right now, if I try to type an address into my IE address bar, explorer will pop up an error message and close. I can only navigate to places through my favorites or google or etc. Can't type URLs. If I turn the computer off and reboot it will probably fix it for now, but all these weird problems are getting out of contol.
I've got to assume that it's the new memory causing these problems. However, since I had to drop over $300 to get it and can't return it, I'm really hoping that having to remove it is not my only option here. Is there something in my bios or registry or whatever that's gotten screwed up because of the new hardware? Is there some way to fix this?
Would it help if I just backed everything up, F-disked the computer and rebuilt it from scratch?
