notanegghead Posted November 22, 2004 Share Posted November 22, 2004 I just installed twinx1024-3200C2PT, upgraded from a single stick of kingston 256. [i never had a problem with the kingston RAM]. All is well untill I start playing half-life then I get random crashes where one error msg said "could not read memory #####" and the blue screen of death that said "all physical memory will be dumped"...?..I think. I really am an amature when it comes to the real tech pc stuff so reading the forums kind of confuses me as to the best coarse of action. I downloaded a memtest [not the one you suggest as I got too confused as how to install/run it] The one I downloaded said it would check all phases of the memory and to run it atleast 20 min, overnight preferably to really stress the memory. I ran it for 30 min with no errors but will try to run the suggested test if you can talk me thru the install in laymans terms. I will now attempt to give you my pc config Pent 4 @ 2.4Mhz 800 fsb abit Is7-e motherboard ATI 9000 pro 64MB Win 2000 pro w/service pack 4 After I installed the new RAM my bios defaulted to hyper threading to which I had to disable since win 2000 does not support it. [strange I thought] Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated, like I said I really dont know what I'm doing so If this problem continues I will return the memory to newegg and try another brand.
