    ya Antisaint, my board can handle that much memory, and so can the 64 bit O/S.

    I have run the memory tests, the memtest 86 already, and the memory is fine.

    If i stick in 2 sticks, any 2 sticks, there is blue screen of death.

    can you think of possibility why?

    please help

First make sure your motherboard can handle the size memory stick you are attempting to install, find out the Max amount of RAM the board can handle per slot. If you are within the range then do a memory test after it is installed to see if the memory is good or has issues. Check out for a bootable memory test program.

When I load windows7 64bit I get an error can't find driver to continue and it does not say what type of driver its looking for.

Are you using an original Windows disk, or something else? What is your install media on? If it's on a thumb drive, you may need to turn "legacy usb" support on in the BIOS of your motherboard.

Jetway motherboard 939 GT4-SLI-G will only accept 3.5 gig RAM and not 4 gig RAM as per specifications. It does not run on gaming applications when 4 gig inserted (4 x 1 gig). Any solution?

If you are running a 32 bit version of windows it will only see up to 3.5gig of ram in your system no matter how much ram you put in there.
This is down to 32 bit windows only being able to address a maximum of 3.5 gig of ram.
Windows 64bit can address a far larger amount of ram and is why you will see all windows computers running 4gig or more of ram having Windows 64bit installed.
As you have said your computer is running Windows 7 32bit the only way you will get your computer to see the whole 4gig of ram you have installed is to upgrade to Windows 7 64bit.
Hope this answers your question and helps you out.

I dont know wat sort of ram to choose for this board because i am wanting to put in x6 4 gig ram ddr3 memory modules

running triple channel memory with more than 3 DDR3 1600 sticks installed (4-6) cuts the memory speed in half. you have to run with 3 sticks at a time in triple channel mode or you will see a reduction in ram speeds.

OCZ is making some good 4 gig ram sticks. they have a 12 gig triple channel memory kit with 3x4gig sticks. you could get 2 of these kits and have your 6 sticks- 24 gigs total, but your memory frequencies will be lower- your ram access will be slower.

The most common causes of your problem are memory and video. 1st thing is to hit F8 and see if your system has an option to halt on all errors. This should cause you to see the blue screen of death if you don't already. It will give you an error code followed by a file name sometimes. If a driver is causing this it will tell you the driver name. This option only works on some systems. The second thing I would try is running Microsoft's memory diagnostic in the extended mode. It runs like 11 tests.

You could also try taking your ram out and running one stick at a time and seeing if the system locks.

Okay, you don't need two video cards. Your 4 memory slots are grouped in two's. One set is black and blue, and the other set is black and blue also. These are your dual memory channels.

The reason you can't see more than 2 gig ram is because you are probably not running 64 bit Windows with a 64 bit processor.

32 bit windows will only display 2 gigs, but max memory is 4 gigs. It will draw on the extra 2 gigs if ever it is needed, but this does not happen very often, if ever.

I have a m3n-ht delux asus board running windows vista ultimate and 4 gig ocz 600 memory i tried to up grade to 8 gig ocz 1033 and the system keeps crashing the board says it will run it but no go. Any...

First of all the FSB of the RAM module should be as per the MB guide book. If it was running on 600, which is a oddity, anything with higher bus speed will not work properly It might work supporting max 2 GB per DIMM slot, so if you have 4 slots then you can use 8 GB RAM but ocz-600 only....sodeep

ASUS Striker II Formula Motherboard and SLI Problem

The Dominators are high performance memory. They are spec'd for 2.1 volts, so you must set the DRAM voltage in your BIOS to 2.1 volts, not the standard 1.8 JEDEC specification. Also, make sure you set your latency timings to the following:

5=CAS Latency=TCL
5=RAS# to CAS# Delay=tRCD
5=RAS# Precharge=tRP
15=RAS# to Activate to Precharge=tRAS
Command Rate 2T

These settings should automatically populate in one of your EPP profiles.

4 Gigs or Ram?

Have you taken a look at page 2-12 in you're manual? Than re-check pg. 2-11 (Read everything) when setting up the Max memory of 4GB.

This may sound weird, but remove ram to make it 2 gigs and try it again, some mobo's have issues with 4 gigs. 3 gigs usually works too.
