After installing corsair memory VS1gb333 1GB PC2700 on my HP desktop, I kept getting blue screen.

 

What should I do now. Is it a matter of compatability?

 

I have a HP Pavilion a800n.

 

Thanks and let me know if you need more info from me.

I saw a post that was quite similar to mine. Basically, one way to fix it is to remove all rams, shut of the power and install only the new corsair ram. I did that and I think it works. However, the momory from my computer porperties is only showing 960 MB ram and not 1 gb ( I bought a 1 gb ram ). I read somehitng about checking and editing the "bios"...do I have to do that?

 

How do I know if my system is stable? I guess if the bue screen doesn't reoccur it would mean my system is stable right? How else can I test my system?

 

Lastly should I insert my old ram back ( the one I took out )? Will the same thing happen again i.e the screen go blank on me?

 

Thanks for you help.

 

Jane
