I have a weird problem here.
When I first built this computer (sig) one of my friends gave me 4GB (x2 2GB) sticks of RAM. I tried using both of them but the computer wouldn't boot so I did a memtest on both of em and it turned out one was loaded with errors (my friend didn't have a problem with them in his computer - any idea why?). I just bought 4GB (x2 2GB sticks) of OSZ Reaper RAM and it is being very finicky in working. I got it to boot using the 4GBs but now it freezes when the OS loads.
||--||-||--||---<--- RAM Slots
- Both sticks work fine in any slot alone
- In slots 2-4/1-3 it loads the screen just before the bios, freezes, then reboots
- When I have both sticks in 1-2 it boots, but between 1-5 mins of use the computer will totally freeze.
If anyone has any idea what is causing these problems I would really appreciate it.
