Im having BSOD issues with the new computer i built when attempting to boot with 6GB of RAM
Im using Vista Ultimate x64, and 2x2GB sticks and 2x1GB sticks of OCZ PC2 6400 800Mhz RAM (SLI Ready editions)
The RAM is installed as so: the 2 GB sticks are placed in the DIMM_A 1 and DIMM_B 1 sockets, and the 1 GB sticks in the DIMM_A 2 and DIMM_B 2 sockets (is this the correct way to set up the RAM using all 4 slots?)
I have an ASUS M3A32 MVP Deluxe motherboard (which allows up to 8GB RAM) with the latest BIOS installed, and Vista has all the necessary updates installed incl SP1.
Everytime I try and boot vista with the 6GB RAM installed, after the green bar screen, it would present a BSOD and the comp will reboot automatically, this also happens when trying to boot in safe mode.
I have also checked if any of the RAM is faulty, however under memory tests it shows that none of the sticks have any problems. Secondly vista will boot if only one of the any sticks are installed, and if 2 sticks of the same memory size are installed (2x2GB or the 2x1GB sticks)
Basically ive tried all RAM combinations, and when I try to mix the 2GB with the 1GB i get a BSOD when booting Vista.
I have searched the internet, desperately looking for solutions (and trying them) but no luck in fixing the issue
Can anyone help me at all? Im nearly tearing my hair out
P.S Could the RAM timings have something to do with it? The 2GB sticks are 5-4-4 whilst the 1GB sticks are 4-4-4?
