My old computer works fine with my new computers ram, but my new computer isnt using the old ram to nicely.
The ram I put into my new computer is:
The only thing better about it is the 800mhz, and faster timing.
My new computer works fine with the OCZ ram, untill I do somthing that reqs. it to work hard, eg. playing wow or doing a memtest, these result in my computer going to a blue screen, everytime it says the same message, then below it is somthing like
Every time it is differnt, At the bottum of the screen it says some stuff about memorie dump file.
So, the problem is this blue screen showing up as a result of my new ram, it goes on about some thing about new hardware, blah blah blah..
My brother told me the problem is the new ram is better and need higher voltage, and my computers bios arnt set to give the voltage, also when I try to change the bios, there isnt an option there.
d3c in the Chatroom said that the ram wasnt compatible, though it is pretty much the same.
Here are some of the specs from my comp using Belarc Advisor:
Board: ACER MCP73 NVIDIA MCP73
Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. R01-A3 01/29/2008
1.80 gigahertz Intel Pentium Dual
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
1024 kilobyte secondary memory cache
1792 Megabytes Installed Memory
Slot 'DIMM0' has 1024 MB (serial number SerNum00)
Slot 'DIMM1' has 1024 MB (serial number SerNum01)
I will be happy to supply anyother info if needed.
Any ideas or solutions are welcome, and thanks in advance
