gb4double Posted February 22, 2005 Share Posted February 22, 2005 I've been experiencing memory related issues since purchasing this memory. Because it was new and what appeared to be the best thing on the market, I never thought the RAM was bad. Programs and games would often crash and here recently i've been experiencing a consistent blue screen error "driver irql not less or equal" folowed by a file name (always different), but most often the error is alone with a stop message. In searching the web, a lot of the information pointed to a bad DIMM. One DIMM can be taken out and is not problematic, one DIMM causes the problem. I purchased more RAM and have yet to see the problem again. I've done everything from swapping out what little parts I have installe don th board. I'm not overclocking at all. The only thing i've done in th BIOS is to disable on board sound. I've went as far as "MULTIPLE" reformats of the hard drive, installing only the bare minimums and having the system crash while running media player. The last resort at least the next to the last (last would've been an all new system of which I can't afford at the moment), as seen above I got new RAM. If someone has had this problem and knows that the RAM is not bad and there is something I need to set in the BIOS, by all means let me know. Again, i've never overclocked the memory, chnaged the factory voltage settings in the BIOS for the memory as the out the box settings are good for me and the most safe...
