Since you have two modules, this tends to be easy as long as one stick can carry the OS. If the problem is a recurring one, try running with one stick giving ample time for the glitch to occur. Then, do the same with the other. If a problem happens with one and not the other, you may have a bad module. If not, put them both in together and see what happens. The next step might be to reverse their slots. It's time consuming but might help. Basically, if the RAM is compatible with the MB, a higher speed product should not cause problems. Two sticks of the same value from different manufacturers might not work well together. RAM manufacturers such as Crucial have information on their web sites that show which of their products work or is best with specific motherboards. Hope that helps.
hey im not exactly a noob but im not an expert either so anyway i got 2 sticks of 512 ram pc3200 and just before i asked some really smart people and they told me although my comp could only run pc2100, that pc3200 would still work. They told me that it would just run it as if it were pc2100. So I got it and all seemed well until my comp froze and glitched out, etc. At first I just thought it was the RAM and that it was defective or something but then i began to think about what they had told me. Does anyone here know anything RAM compatibility and all that stuff? All the help i could get would be great.
ps: if u need any more info on my comp or wat RAM i bought then just ask for it.
