i've been experiencing some random firefox crashes and problems installing some programs lately. i just replaced my PSU so it's not the problem. I have a 2month old kingston ddr400 RAM with CAS 3 and i mixed it with another kingston RAM ddr333 CAS 2.5. I was told by crucial.com that mixing RAM speeds are okay so i did. From the start, the new RAM has been giving me crashes and upon those times i've been trying hard to find the problem.
i came about this website that tells about CAS latency so i had an idea to check about it. When I checked in the bios, the only SDRAM CAS latency options are CAS 2 and 2.5. My ddr333 has CAS2.5 so it's not a prob but my ddr400 has CAS 3 so i've been thinking about it. Does this cause any problem??
I already tried removing the ddr333 and so it's just the ddr400 but still crashes happen. I also tried it with just the ddr333 and no crashes.
