  1. My computer will shut off when I print if I have both of the ram slots filled? It will work fine with just 1 ram. Why? Any help would be appreciated

    incompatible ram
    incompatible ram with motherboard
    bad memory slot
    bad ram stick

    these are your possibilities.

    test bad ram with memtest 86+ booted from a floppy or cd rom
