  1. Hello,

    I am having a problem with my computer, whenever I try to put in more then one stick of RAM, I Get the Beginning dump of physical memory Blue Screen Error. Ive tryed everything I could think of, Uninstalling programs, checking task manager's apps list (nothing unusual was running), got a totally new motherboard, and got new memory.

    Heres the specs on my computer:
    Im running Windows XP Pro Service Pack 2 (Fully updated)
    Its a Intel 82845 Pentium 4 1.60 Ghz Motherboard
    Onboard Sound
    Radeon 9200 Video Card (up to date drivers)

    Could someone please help me? It would be greatly appreciated!

    Physical Dump/ BSOD/ RAM


    What is PC133?
    PC133 is a specification for a 133 MHz Synchronous DRAM memory module. It is an enhancement to the original specification for PC100 memory modules.

    The Intel 845's 82845 MCH supports Socket 478–based Celeron or Pentium 4 processors and can support up to two DDR SDRAM modules or three standard SDRAM modules (depending on the motherboard)

    Please check the site I left for RAM. I do not have enough information from you to determine the type of RAM module you need.

    Beginning dump

    You will find the RAM information here:

    It was not my intention to do this for you however. But since I did, you'll see you have 3 slots- running Windows XP on only 128MB RAM is running very lean. Even adding another 128MB leaves you with less that best. Go for as much as you can within the specs and see if that will take care of the BSOD problem.

    You're going to have to put out some effort! I left the Crucial site for RAM. You should have at least 512MB of RAM to run Windows XP.

    Read the manufacturer's spec for the motherboard:
    Number of Slots:
    Slot 1
    Slot 2
    Slot 3
    Each memory slot can hold SDRAM, PC133 with a maximum of 512MB per slot.*
