Question about Acer Aspire M3400 PC Desktop
Added additional 4 Gb (2x2Gb) Corsair TW3X4G1333C9 Ram. Get Stop errors 0x0000001A and 0x000000DE. Tested in both dual slots 1&2 and 3&4 combination with the original ram. PC has original Kingston DDR 1333 (1x2 Gb) modules. The Ram I am adding is the exact specs as the one in the PC. I have updated the Bios to the newest P01-B4 and set to default with optimal settings. I do not see any option to adjust memory settings in the bios to set it to 1066. I have tested the Corsair ram in windows 7 memory diagnostic and also with Memtest overnight and no ram errors.Crash Dump shows Memory Management and Pool Corruption in File Area errors. When used separately without the Kingston Ram in any of the dual slots the PC runs fine. Please help.
Please check the memory timing settings. if your mixing up ram they may not have the same memory timings and require you to go either higher or to the supported settings that either memory can use. for example if corsair runs at 8-8-8-14 and kingston runs at 10-10-10-16 then you will need to bump the settings to 10-10-10-16 since the computer is trying to set the timings for kingston to 8-8-8-14 which it does not support.

Testimonial: "Thanks Tony. Appreciate your help. I will get 2 more sticks of identical ram. This is the downside of purchasing pre-configured retail PC's."
Back up system as factory set using recovery console( acer e management) install ram and restore to factory conditions WITH new ram this will auto repair bios to handle ram settings done so on my machine identical to yours my qualifications in computers are adequate enough ( rebuild repair upgrades programming) etc do not try to retime settings allow installation to make changes
