Mobo: Asus p5n-d
2x 2gb (4gb) Ram Kingston pc-6400 800mhz (Currently)
2x 1gb Buffalo pc-6400 8mhz (the ram want to use)
Hello, a friend of mine recently gave me 2x 1gb sticks of buffalo pc-6400 800mhz ram. I was excited because it matched my current rams speed. It works well and boots the first time, both the bios and windows recognizes it and i dont have any slow slow-down from it. However, whenever i power off my computer if i try to restart it i get to the windows loading screen but it stops there, ever safe-mode stops on the load screen. When i take the two new sticks out everythings fine.
So long story short i just want to know if its anything like system or bios settings thats stopping it? I ran a Memtest+ (the newest version as of a couple days ago)and it showed no errors. I ever updated my bios itself, yet all too no avail. If anyone alot smarter than me knows why the ram does this it would be great to be able to use it. I know chances are its just bad ram but i would like to get up to 6gb. I havent swapped the ramm completly to check if its the dimm slots yet, but i took an air compressor to the whole pc to clean out the dust and i wanna try to avoid lugging it back out if its something like timing or a setting causing the error.
I also attached a sysinfo file from nvidia control panel if its any help.
