Hei i got a problem with my pc.

My pc hangs/freezes alot in games and stuff like that, iv seen on the web that it can be my ram that is wrong configured.

I can see that my ram is 1066 not 1333 that is should be so i think my ram is the problem

I got 1 memory stick in the first slot (A1 yellow) and the 2nd memory stick in the 3rd slot(B1 yellow )

 

when i check my bios its all default. I was not aware that you had to configure you ram since this is usaually ok with auto.

 

I need help to get my ram to run stabil so i hope some one can help me.

Download Memtest86+ Version 2.11 from--->

and extract the ISO image. Burn the ISO image to an CD-ROM disk.

Download CPU-z from
.

Shut the system down. Insert a single stick in the first slot (Closest to the CPU/Black Slots) and one in the third slot. Restart and enter your BIOS, load Setup Defaults, Save Setup Defaults and set to these values.

well it still hangs. now even faster than before. Just a few mins in the game and it hangs. Before it didnt happen that fast.

 

Should i try to put the memory sticks in the brown slots? or dosnt that men anything?

If you pass memtest then your issues are external to the memory regardless of your belief that the memory is at fault. I would install a fresh OS. Very likely you have issues that are software based.

But the memtest just show if the sticks are working? right? so they may work as they should but maybe the timing or the setup of the sticks need some more tweeking?

 

I can try a new win on another disk and see if that works. just that it seems wierd that it hangs faster now after i tryed this.
