Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I'm having a real problem using my Acer8920g set-up with dual channel memory. Basically I get a lot of screen freezes and blue screens when both these ram modules are installed. I have two identical Crucial memory sticks 2x2GB=4GB DDR2 PC2-5300 installed, they are brand new and were sold as a kit with customer support to be sure of compatibility. I downloaded Memtest86+ and when I boot with this program and run the memory tests no errors were detected on the individual modules, they were tested


Answers :

When you test the ram modules separately, did you test them in the same bay...or have you tested both sticks separatly in both bays?

this sounds like a non responsive ram bay and may indicate that you need a new motherboard. Check to see if your motherboard has any bulging capacitors or other visual dammage.
