Hi All,

Replaced a friends 256 memory with two 512, exact same kind only MB different, machine can take up to 1 gig, rebooted,computer fine for three hours, went to install a wireless adapter, and got that Blue scrren saying conflict. Deleted adapter, same blue screen, replaced her old memory and booted fine. Reinstalled wireless adapter, that works fine....what would make a computer reject memory that it was running for three hours? I did have a hard time getting one of memory in one of the slots, could this slot be bad? Any ideas would be helpful! Thanks

add on: This was on the blue screen

0x00000000 " "

Always test the RAM after playing around with it :)

Remove and reseat the memory modules.

If problems persist, try less aggressive memory timings in BIOS - bigger memory is often slower.

Some system specs would help. What brand and model# is the machine (or mobo) and what brand and model# are the RAM sticks. And what slots do you have them installed in?
