    Default G41m-combo rev 2.0

    Hello guys! Im new here (first post!) I just bought some new stuff and having some issues.
    I got these

    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-G41M-Combo v2
    CPU: DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo E7500, 2933 MHz
    GPU: Point of view NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 (2048 MB)
    Ram: Exceleram E30137A 4096 MB (DDR3-1333 PC3-10666 9-9-9-24) x2
    Psu: hantol power supply 550watt
    hdd: SAMSUNG HD501LJ ATA Device (500 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA-II)
    os: Windows 7 Ultimate x64

    All above are new bought except my cpu. Well the thing is.. When i install both rams pc is running but after some
    minutes doing random stuff (or playing games) i get a blue screen with errors. I tried it with a second hdd to work and
    format it and i still get blue screen. (I removed the second ram and it works fine) Or my motherboard just simply doesnt
    support 8gb of ram? What program do you suggest to use,to see if everything is working fine or something is damaged
    and need to be changed?

    ehmmm.. some new info.. my cpu i had it in my previous motherboard asus p5q and i asked a technician to tell me whats going
    on with the blue screen on double ram and he told me that cpu was used to run on ddr2 and cant handle 8gb ram of ddr3. Thats pretty
    wrong right?

    Any help would be much appreciated guys.

    Welcome to the forums SS.
    If you look up your mobo on Gigabyte website it tells you to use 800-1066mhz speed on the memory,1333 only thru overclocking.
    If I remember correctly the E7500 has a FSB of 1066, so for default settings you should be linked and synced at 1066.
    You should never run the memory higher than the CPU!
    The G41 chipsets were not very good at overclocking,they are good for regular computing needs.
    Change memory to 1066mhz speed ,and you should be fine with 2x4gig DDR3.
    Never heard of Exceleram, they may not be on the list of supported ram for motherboard?
    Since it is a G41combo you could always use DDR2 memory from other board.

    I have never had any issues running the memory higher than the CPU (that's how you overclock), but that is a G41 chipset and the only overclocking that board had in mind was running 1333mhx for an extreme CPU.

    Running DDR3 on that motherboard should be fine as the memory controller is on the motherboard and not through the CPU so running DDR3 is not a problem, it will only fit in 2 of the 4 slots and you just cannot run both memory types at the same time.

    Do you recall what blue screen you were getting?

    Right click on My Computer and select properties, on the left click on "Advance System Settings", under Start-up and Recovery click on settings, then uncheck "Automatically Restart"

    then once you get a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) you can record what the fault code was.

    it will be a 0x0000xxx number.

    based on that number we can determine what the appropriate action will be.

    next time it happens let us know.

    Thank you very much for responding guys! Well i dont want to overclock just gaming and movies.
    My rams are these:
    http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/e...psda6c0af6.jpg
    And the blue screen is that (when i installed both rams and tried to type here it pop-d it) so really quick.
    http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/e...psc87b3653.jpg
    Also when i boot it back again i got this from windows

    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
    Locale ID: 1033

    Additional information about the problem:
    BCCode: 50
    BCP1: FFFFFAC0091B5B00
    BCP2: 0000000000000000
    BCP3: FFFFF80002CE110C
    BCP4: 0000000000000005
    OS Version: 6_1_7600
    Service Pack: 0_0
    Product: 256_1

    Files that help describe the problem:
    C:\Windows\Minidump\122412-17222-01.dmp
    C:\Users\Pater\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-29234-0.sysdata.xml

    So if i just replace those rams with 1066mhz ddr3 8gb it should be fine? I can even feel some tiny lags
    when i use 1 ram but it didnt pop any blue screen even playing for about 2 hours skyrim and my computer
    was online for about 7-8 hours.

    You can use those rams instead of buying new ones, just go to your bios and manually set them to 1066mhz.
    All C2Q and C2D run better being linked and synced to the Cpu's FSB( yours beening 1066mhz for a E7500 C2D)
    While also in bios set the ram voltage a little bit higher manually to 1.52-1.55volt, since those are rated for 1.5 volt.
    You may also be able to drop the timings down to 8-8-8-22 2t for better overall performance.

    Ya I would run the ram at 1.5V, an 0x00050 error is a either a memory error or voltage related to memory

    you can start with setting the memory to 1:1 (Linked and Synced)...

    I would start with resetting the Bios, then on first boot-up enter the bios by pressing the Delete Key and "Load Optimized Settings" and then save and reboot again.

    Once the system re-boots go back in the bios and just start with increasing the memory voltage from auto to 1.5V, and start with that.

    this is all pointing to bad memory, memory setting or possibly a bad ram slot...

    Run Memtestx86, download is here; Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    I normally get the "Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)" ... direct Link to what I normally get http://www.memtest.org/download/4.20...+-4.20.iso.zip

    Burn it to a CD, then re-boot your PC, press F12 and select your CD/DVD boot device.

    let the memory tool run, for 1 pass can take an hour or two depending on the system. start with this and we'll go from there.

    Set voltage at 1.5 volt or use normal.
    I looked up that power supply of yours and it is a very cheap 20.00$ unit.
    Don't go cheap on PSU, it is better to have a good name brand.
    During cold start-ups it is probally not giving good voltage to your system,only when it warms up it is fine.
    If you have another Psu to test with I would do that.
    Also make sure all power cables are securely attached(24 pin, 8 pin, power cord to outlet).
