VisualChaser Posted February 14, 2013 Share Posted February 14, 2013 I recently bought Corsair Vengeance 1x8GB, DDR3, PC12800, CL9 (CMZ8GX3M1A1600C9). But I'm getting a BSOD every time I start my computer, when it's loading windows. I already tried moving the RAM card to another slot, but it still gave me a BSOD. The computer works fine with the old RAM. All the BIOS settings are on auto, and I read somewhere that increasing the voltage of the RAM might help, but it didn't. Updating the BIOS to the latest version didn't work either. I tested the RAM with memtest86 and it showed me 2 errors at test #5 (Block move, 80 moves) but the test passed. I attached a photo of the errors. Does anyone know what's causing the BSOD? My other hardware: Alienware Area-51 ALX Intel Core i7-980x six core (3.33GHz, 6.4GT/s, 12MB cache) Dual 2GB ATI Radeon HD 5970 (CrossfireX enabled) 1.5TB (2x750GB) Serial ATA Raid 0 (7200RPM) Dual HDD Windows 7 Ultimate x64 And my old RAM: Kingston HyperX DDR3 2GB, 1866MHz Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
