spacecat,

Did you get that information on your RAM ("2 gb ddr800 samsung fg14/10n") from a program, or by looking at the RAM itself?

You should be able to get into your BIOS by repeatedly pressing delete as your computer starts up. From there, select Performance Booster Zone, and let us know what the values are in that section.

OK three issues I would like to address.
First one is it doesn't seem to me that you have a matching pair of memory modules.
This could be a issue.
Second I would like to make sure what you have is what is recommended for your MOBO. Please do the next steps and let us know the results.

Go HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system. You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.


Third this may help us a little more also.

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: First click on the Mainboard tab at the top of the window and give me Manufacturer and Model number it shows
5: Click on the Memory tab and give me the Type and Size of memory it shows.
6: Click on the SPD tab and get me the Max Bandwidth line information.

Please include in your next reply

Go here to Biostar support page to see the supported memory types for your MOBO.

Once you have the CPU=Z information we can compare it to what you have.
I also would like to see your PSU voltages. To do this follow the next steps.


Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop


Attach it to your next reply
