DDR2 Ram Causing BSOD

I recently got two new ram sticks (2x1) http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=3281543FA5CA7304
However, whenever i put either one or both of them in, My computer goes BSOD on me.

I believe the RAM might be defective, as it was "Compatible" with my system.

Re: DDR2 Ram Causing BSOD

Hi MrGoodSir,


I can see from your scan results your system already has 2x667MHz modules installed in the system.


If you are adding the new Crucial memory to the existing memory it could be a compatibility issue between the different memory types.  I would recommend trying the Crucial memory one at a time in the system with no other memory installed.


This to to make sure that each stick works on it's own and it's the best way to check if it is a fault or a compatibility issue between the different memory types.


You have ordered the correct memory for your system but you may have to arrange an exchange for a different density or revision of memory to match your existing memory.   If the new memory works on it's own or if there is a fault please contact our customer service team direct HERE to arrange an exchange for you.
