Toe Cooke Posted February 25, 2013 Share Posted February 25, 2013 Dear Team - your assistance, if possible...I have a Gigabyte MB as spec'd in my profile. I recently installed an SSD and loaded W8 64 bit OS, alongside the HDD based W7 32 bit OS. All was happily dual booting, with the MB fitted with 4GB Corsair memory, namely CMV4GX3M2A1333C9. To take advantage of the larger memory address space, I ordered and installed the Corsair CMV8GX3M2A1333C9 modules, to give me the max-permissible 8GB of memory. Installing this memory causes the system to get as far as self-test (8GB of memory registered by the BIOS) before at recycles at the point it tries to boot W8. I can get the W7 installation to boot by forcing the BIOS to boot from the HDD first, rather than the from the SSD. Reinstalling the 4GB causes all to work well again. I have read through many of your threads and altered various BIOS settings, such memory voltage (raised it to 1.6V) and memory freq (reduced it to 1066) without success. I am confused in that I have replaced like-for-like in terms of model number of the 8GB vs the 4GB units...can you offer any guidance? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
