I got 2 x Kingston 2gb Ddr2 800mhz Hyperx Memory KHX6400D2/2G
The problem is 1 runs at 800MHz and the other runs at 667MHz. I don't understand why it does this. They should both be 800MHz.
Thanks

Go HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system.
This will tell you exactly what the memory you have in your system is and any upgrades for future reference.

If the previous suggestion does not give you the information you need then try this:


Please download CPUz from my signature below

1: Save it to your desktop.
2: Click on the icon it creates and let it run
3: I need the following information from it.
4: Click on the Memory tab and give me the Type and Size of memory it shows.
5: Click on the SPD tab and get me the Max Bandwidth line information.

What kind of motherboard do you have?
Is it capable of using 4 GB of RAM? (some motherboards can only use 2 or 3 Gb of RAM)
Are you overclocking?

rshaffer61: I won't be installing that program.
hfcg: I have an Asus P5N-E and I got Vista 64bit. I had 2GB/1GB/1GB before but the 1GB were cheap so I got rid of them for 2 2GB of Kingston. I think this is a problem with this memory. I found out how to set the speed in the BIOS manually and I set the CPU FSB to 1066 and Memory to 800MHz seems to be working at 800MHz now.
