Extra DDR RAM causes crashes

  podger4 15:04 28 Mar 2004

I have installed extra DDR RAM to my computer but after only a short while get messsages saying that the programme has experienced a problem & must close. This happens in different programmes so not linked to any programme. Have de installed the extra memory & then everything works OK so it is to do with the memory addition. Has anybody any ideas?

Which version of Windows, how much RAM did you add and what's your total RAM?

Have you tried running with the 512 stick in on its own.See if its the memory that is bad.

Win XP should have problems running 756Mb of RAM. Thats what I have. Sounds as perhaps the 512 stick might be faulty.

Try Rayuk`s suggestion and see what happens.
