My computer started to crash since I changed ram type ddr3 to ddr2 and bios reset. I had to do that since my motherbaord ddr3 ram slots are not working anymore. Since then my computer freezes. Sometimes there are BSOD suddenly coming up or when I shutdown computer. And they say different reason why they happned. Sometimes when I open a software like Firefox, the crash report windows opens stating firefox crashed. And when I start playing a game the same thing happens. I would have tried to solve the problems by myself but there are so my different erros not sure where to start.

Please help, thanks.

Per http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR3_SDRAM :

 

"DDR3 DIMMs have 240 pins and are electrically incompatible with DDR2. The two are prevented from being accidentally interchanged by different key notch positions on the DIMMs. Not only are DDR2 and DDR3 keyed differently, DDR2 has rounded notches on the side and the DDR3 modules have square notches on the side. DDR3 SO-DIMMs have 204 pins."

 

What motherboard do you have installed...or what OEM system is this?

Hi, my motherboard is AS ROCK N68 S UCC. I gave the computer to a repair shop, thats why for the late reply. But I am still afraid that it will happen again. So is there any procedure I can follow through to find any standing problems. Thank you.

Crashes are a part of computer life...some are more irritating than others, but they all indicate a problem within Windows which occurs for a reason. They are nothing to be afraid of...as long as the user is willing to learn and accept the message that the system delivers...each time that a crash occurs.

 

If they happen in the future, just post here and we'll try to figure out why such things occur and how to overcome such.
