Hey Guys,


Comp specs:
Evga 280GTX x2 SLI
9850 AMD 2.66GHz
At the moment 4GB of Kingston Ram 1066Mhz (Upgraded from 1066Mhz Corsair ram)
m3n-ht Deluxe/HDMI motherboard
Windows Vista x64 Ultimate SP1 all updates.
.


Problem is, i'm building a second computer for a friend. They didnt have any of the ram he wanted so i decided to give him my ram and buy 2 4gb kits of Kingston.
Therefor i would have 8GB of ram which should work perfectly fine?

But when ever i insert both sets of ram it Bsod's

I'm not entirely sure how to upload the minidump file to you guys, or what further information u need such as Event logs or such.

I can try run a Memtest, but i'll wait for your advise.

Thank you,


Matthew













*EDIT*
Problem Fixed, Ran memtest, turns out faulty ram. Thanks :)

First what MOBO is the friends you are building?
Does it happen with only one stick in it at a time?
If you can't get past BSOD then do the following:

Start your system and at the Second post screen tap on F8 to get to the Boot Menu
Scroll down to the line that says "Auto Start On Error" and highlight it.
Click Enter to disable it
The system should reboot and if not then do so.
When the BSOD shows it will stop so that you can reply with the full error message

Hello rshaffer61,

It was just faulty memory, i sent the .dump files to a mate that's mvp/mcse.
He confirmed the dodge ram i printed off the memtest and dump file and got a full refund.

Thank you tho :)
