Hey I have been trying to solve this problem for days, but have been having no luck.
What I did: I bought mushkin silverline 4GB(2x2GB) DDR2 800mHz CLS DIMM and installed it into my computer along side my OCZ 4G (the OCZ in yellow and the Mushkin in red)
What Happens: The OS attempts to boot and then crashes before getting past the splash screen
What I assume: I can have two sets of non paired RAM as long as they are installed on their corresponding color matching channel
What I have Tried: the new memory alone : works, The old memory alone: works, all memory together and upping voltage on the (g)MCH and FBS and DDR : still fails to load on OS startup.
can anyone help me? are these chips just incompatible? I'm pulling out my hair over this.
