Turning Up Voltages For Ram

Recommended Posts

I recently had my roommate buy a couple of upgrades to beef up his old computer before I ship out to the Navy & he loses his only computer savvy person, and I decided to switch from the 1gb of Kingston value RAM to 2GB of High Performance GSkill. Problem is, I think that the voltages on his mobo are set too low to support both sticks, as the computer works fine with one, but once I insert the second stick, our good friend BSOD shows up & raids the fridge. I checked his BIOS & can't really see a clear-cut entry like RAM or DIMM voltages, so does anybody know any tricks to make BSOD get outta the fridge by turning the voltage up?

Giving his system specs might prove helpful


Er, lol. I don't see how as I'm almost sure its a BIOS voltage issue, but here goes:


Intel Pentium 4 @ 1.6Ghz

ASUS AH 3650 512mb DDR2

1 Gb DDR 400 Gskill RAM

MSI 645 Ultra Mobo

80GB HDD (didn;t check brand)

Antec Earthwatts 500W PSU

Coolermaster Centurion Case


And thats about it!



Yes, both works fine, both work amazingly alone, put em together & they invite BSOD for a party.
