BSOD because of Memory Incompatibility


Recommended Posts

Hi, my computer keeps crashing (Blue Screen of Death - BSOD) and I have been told it is because my Memory is not compatible with my motherboard.

Question 1 - Can that be a reason for a BSOD? The Blue Screen gives the following rasons for the crash.

"Caused by driver" = either ntfs.sys or atapi.sys

:Heading" = each time a different reason is given at the top of the Blue Screen,








Question 2: Now I need to change all 6 brand new DIMMS that I bought (6 x 4GB). The only replacements I see that are compatible with my mother board is 2GB per DIMM so I can only get a maximum of 12GB (only have 3 channels and 6 slots). Any suggestion on what the best memory is to buy?

What is the part number of the memory you purchased and how many sets did you purchase? It looks like you may have purchased 3 sets of Twin modules; if so that may very well be the problem, I would suggest you purchase aset of modules that are the density you want to use in your system. IE for example a 12 Gig set sold and packaged as one set, we do not suggest mixing memory.
