DrEggel Posted August 26, 2013 Share Posted August 26, 2013 Now, I’m sorry if this has been answered in a plain way somewhere, but I surely can’t find any answers that makes sense. I’ve just upgraded my son’s computer (specs. in my sig) from 4 GB to 8 GB RAM by replacing the two “old” sticks of 2x2 GB. My son is pretty happy with the upgrade, but since I function as his financial institution (I pay! ;) I find it a bit annoying that he can’t take advantage of the previous sticks – 8 GB is nice but 12 GB is even better. But is this even possible? There are a lot of letters and digits on the labels but several things are the same – Corsair (of course), XMS3, DDR3, 1600MHz, 1.65V etc. - but this is apparently not a guaranty that it will work? I have tried the sticks in various configurations – in pairs, the big ones first, the small ones first and lastly according to the color coded sockets (two are blue and two are black). But the computer just keep rebooting. Any help would be appreciated. Richard Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
