Error Message Soon After Opening Apps

Recommended Posts

I recently ordered A CORSAIR XMS 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200)...


Soon after I installed it, i wanted to see if i could notice a difference in performance. So I opened CounterStrike, but soon after, got a windows error message saying that cs.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. Therefore Counterstrike closes and about a minute after that, windows shuts down and i get a blue screen saying that windows shut off because there was a error. (This happens with all games and Internet Explorer) I've tried rearranging the order or the ram with no success. Now I don't know what to do...Please help. :[pouts:


My specs are:

AMD Athlon 64 3400+ ClawHammer 800MHz FSB Socket 754 Processor

GIGABYTE GA-K8NSNXP Socket 754 NVIDIA nForce3 250

ATI Radeon X800 PRO 256MB AGP8x

2 x 512mb PC3200 DDR 4000MHz

Windows XP SP2

Please set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, and then test the module/modules one at a time with www.memtest.org! If you still get errors, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! However, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure.
