    I have win7 x64 and i use 4gb DDR400memory ( 2x2Gb pair).

    When i allow the motherboard to use the whole memory the windows start to freeze .

    I have read a lot of post with the same proble same chipset(nforce 4) but different motherboard . Their problem was solved when they used the lastest bios, but as you can see this solution is not good for me

    If after installation of RAM, you have formatted the C drive and installed a genuine version of Win7, you should not encounter any BSOD. I suggest you re-install Win7 after completely formatting your C: drive (after backup of course). If this hasn't solved your problem, try switching the RAM in slots.

    Did you reinstall Windows from scratch after upgrading the RAM? If you have not, I'm positive that it will help.

    What OS are you using (or intend to use);32-bit or 64-bit? What type of RAM are you trying to install? This motherboard supports Dual Channel DDR400 memory.

Installed 4GB upgrade in optiplex 330 still only 2GB memmory


Your BIOS should automatically detect your new RAM when your computer starts, try starting your computer after removing your old RAM module, if it starts, you need to update your BIOS to use 4GB. If it doesn't start, you either have a faulty RAM module or a faulty connector on your motherboard. Insert the new RAM module into the slot the old RAM module was in, if your computer still refuses to start, you have a faulty RAM module which should be returned, if it does start, it's the connector on the motherboard, and only replacing the entire board will fix the problem. However, it's worth noting that your motherboard will only support RAM modules of 2GB or less, the above was written with the assumption you're adding an additional 2GB module to your Dell computer.

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Tracey Laidler.

Yes you are quite correct BSOD or Blue Screen Of Death is normally due to a memory fault. However drivers are as big a culprit, especially seeing as though you have changed memory modules and processor.

Install all the drivers for this mainboard.
Also enter the BIOS/CMOS by tapping the Delete key during first powering on the computer.
Once in the BIOS/CMOS select the option to load defaults.
Check if that works.

If not then take it a step further by clearing the BIOS/CMOS by removing the silver button cell from the mainboard for 10seconds before reinstalling it in the correct orientation.

Take care!

Installing XP = BSOD


Hello

Without the actual info from the BSOD, we have to provide general troubleshooting tips.

Since Windows is not yet loaded, it cannot be a driver or software issue - so we need to look at the hardware.

Typically, a faulty or unrecognized RAM stick and / or an unusual BIOS setting can cause this issue.

Go into the BIOS and reset the BIOS to factory defaults, remove all CPU overclocking.

Remove all RAM and try booting with only 1 stick installed.

If this does not work, try and give the error message from the BSOD and we can look into it for you.

Take out the memory and replace with the old one.
If you have a 32 bit Windows and have more that 4GB RAM then you need to upgrade to 64 BIT.
This is the RAM you need:

New system hangs at p.o.s.t


I would first clear the cmos. Then try to get back into the bios and check the ram voltage setting. My Asrock board AOD790GX128M had me use the #3,4 memory slots, the #1,2 gave me the bsod. You may want to try that also. I hope this helps you.

Im not sure how much ram to use with my motherboard.


Your board can support 4Gb of RAM.

CLICK HERE for the SPEC sheet.

HERE is the memory support list, there is only 1 type of KINGSTON 2GB stick that is listed as compatible.

Make sure you have the latest BIOS as there are some known issues with this board and certain 4GB RAM configs as well as fixes for 1TB HDD space errors.

Always a good idea to make sure you have the latest XP service pack. In general, XP only recognises 3Gb RAM but mine runs fine with 4 in it.

When you crash, is there any Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) or any other output to your monitor or does it just shut down with no warning or error code or anything? If this is happening then you may be getting a CPU OVERTEMP condition.

Have you recently upgraded other components as well as your RAM?

A8N32 BSOD PROBLEM


I had a similar problem with this board after putting in a new sata drive I got Bsod as windows xp started loading.
There is some kind of conflict with SP3, Sata and usb.

The solution for me was to boot while having a 4GB usb drive pugged in. It starts up fine now. If I remove the usb drive it bsod´s again.

Flashing the bios is a very bad idea if your are having bsod. If it crashes during the flash then the bios chip wont work anymore.

Also flashing bios wont fix the bsod problem.

Could you give more detail about how the bsod happen?
Download memtest and run that from bootble disk to check if the ram is functioning properly.
