norcalnicca Posted November 17, 2005 Share Posted November 17, 2005 I have a Asus A7N8X-LA (although Technically Compaq) motherboard and I am running two VS512MB400 chips and instantly my computer becomes extremely unstable. I have tried new drivers, reinstalling windows etc etc etc..... and have come to the conclusion it is the ram because when I take the RAM out and replace it with the old ram (512 MB PC 2700) I have no problems. Now understand, I do know my motherboard requires PC 2700 and not PC 3200. I have a friend with the same exact system I have and when upgraded with PC 3200 it simply runs the ram at PC 2700 speed with no instability issues. My computer recognizes the full 1024MB of RAM and I have tried 4 other Pentium 4 Based Motherboards and 2 other Athlon XP based motherboards and I ran into the same issuse. The reason I bought this ram instead is because I will be building a new system, soon enough anyways. Please help.......... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
