It may not actually be a hardware issue, it could be software corruption. try reinstalling your operating system and see if there any difference.

I bought a new 1GB ram(DD2) when i insert it it nt work bt whenever i insert it with old 512MB ram then its work bt in bios setting only show the 1GB ram


Maybe 1GB is the maximum amount of memory that your system will hold. And maybe your system likes memory to be in pairs, so when you put the 1GB in by itself it didn't work, but when you put it in with a 512MB it works.

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!

I want to upgrade my computer specs... hope you can help me.. CPU: intel core2 duo E4600 2.4Ghz/800Mhz/2mb L2 cache/65MOnm MOBO: elite 945GCT -M2/1333 (v1.0), 1945GC/C2D/1333MHZ/DDR2 667/PCI-E memory:...


If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows XP, you probably need more RAM.
If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, you DEFINITELY need more RAM.

Some motherboards support "dual-channel" mode, when you have 2 or 4 _IDENTICAL_ sticks of RAM. What happens is that each byte written to the RAM is "split" into 2 halves; one half is written to the 'A' stick of RAM, while, simultaneously, the other half is written to the 'B' stick of RAM. Obviously, this takes 4 "cycles" of the RAM, rather than taking 8 "cycles", if there was only one stick of RAM. So, your RAM seems to run at "double-speed".

So, when you buy more RAM, either try very hard to "match" your current 1GB stick of RAM, or purchase a "2GB dual-channel kit", or two "2GB dual-channel kits", to upgrade to 2GB (or 4GB) of RAM.

Random restart


This definitely sounds like the CPU is overheating, graphics card is overheating, or your memory is failing.

Check your CPU temp. and fan, and check graphics card fan.

Pc hang


depending on what "SF" (which ever game that may be) requires you may want to make sure that if you are a windows user then to make sure you have the most up to date drivers for your video card and make sure you have sufficient amount of ram installed as well as video card requirements on your computer. most games these days games require a good hand full of resources such as call of duty 4? or crysis? half life 2, fear, any MMORPG games etc so make sure your computer has enough resources to run this game you speak of and make sure your not tying up other usefull resources on background applications you are running by either closing them or bringing task manager up and closing them that way (personaly i prefer task manager because it shows you what and which apps are using all your resources) make sure also that your DX (Direct X) is the most up to date (dumb comment but you would be amazed on how many users complain because they say everything is up to date but later to see that they have direct x 9 ver "B" installed rather then version "C" so please make sure drivers, software, game updates (if available) DX9 update and requirements such as ram, video card, video card ram are even suffient enough for that game to run smooth

Hi my name ia rahul from india,mumbai my pc brnd new amd proccer,256mb ram,asus motherboard the problem is whic ever i install the softwae the system gets hangup


hi welcome to fixya! what particular system you are installing, is it XP sp1, XP sp2, or Vista? Configure first the CMOS before doing the the OS installation. Set everything to its default configuration before running the process. 256 MB of memory for Vista is not enough it is good only for XP sp1 or sp2. See to it that your HDD was properly connected and its not loosen. If still the problem persist, change the ATA HDD cable (it looks like a ribbon in color gray) into a brand new one, sometimes its one of the cause of hang-ups and change your CMOS battery also. If still you experience hang-ups feel free to ask a help from a service center near you. Good Day!

512 is not alot of memory (especially when running windows XP) as XP needs at least 512 to run (since SP2) 

I am not familiar with the Zion brand, I tend to use Crucial or Kingston.

to find the correct mem for your board you can use the Kingston Configurator (just input the manufacturer and part details of your board and it will give you the products that work for your board.)
