New ram messing up computer

I recently bought a couple sticks of new ram and installed them correctly. But now when I play a game on my computer every few minutes it will "freeze" up my mouse and keyboard. By this I mean everything keeps running fine but the mouse and kboard get locked out of use for about 3 seconds and if I had a key or mouse button pushed down it reads that they are still head down until the little freeze up is over. It has done it with other ram as well so I would think the problem is elsewhere. Also a little over a year ago the integrated graphics card went out and I had to send it in. Could it be possible that they put in a new motherboard that isn't compatible with the ram that was compatible with the old one? Thanks for the help

Does not sound like a memory problem. Usually the machine just crashes. You can run memtest86 to really exercise the memory on your machine. Download (for free) from You have to burn the image to a CD-ROM then boot from the CD. Let it run for a couple of hours and you'll know if you have a memory problem.

Driver memory stick

Try putting the ram in another computer and see if you have the same problem. If the issue goes away one of the sticks of ram might not have been fully seated. If you get the same result you have a bad stick of ram. Go to the manufactures website and download ram checker and install it (free software). This will help diagnose your problem. If you get an error code write it down so you can give it to the manufacturer which indicates which error problem you have... If it turns out that you have a bad stick of ram contact the manufacturer and they may send you another stick of ram. Some manufacturers have a lifetime warranty on their ram. Hope this helps.

HI, i was thinking about upgrading my laptops ram module for faster use, i am not all to computer savvy, i just play games and use the inernet. i was wondering how i would install the module and use it...

In laptops, (and some desktops) how much RAM you can use is dictated by how many slots exist to plug ram into. Also, by how many Gigabytes are supported by the motherboard chipsets.
For you... You probably have 2 slots for RAM. IF you have 1 GB of ram, it may be in 2 sticks of 1/2 a gig (500 MB each) plugged into the 2 slots. Or if you have 500 MB, 2 sticks of 250MB This is very common.
If you want to upgrade to 2 Gig, for example, (and may be the max for you) you must purchase 2 sticks of the correct type to install, and remove the existing sticks. You may be able to sell the old ones on ebay.. but hardly worth it for few dollars.
Most important is to reseach exactly what your laptop supports maximum and the correct type.

For more help, post a new problem with specific laptop info. Manufacturer, Model number etc.

System Requirements

With your Extensa you should be fine with the video and sound cards, as long as yours meets the 2ghz + 1g RAM, you shouldn't have any problems with the game. If you are, try updating to the latest sound and video drivers. Also, if you're sitting on 1g of RAM now, you might consider bumping it up to 2g. This will help it run smoother and avoid crashing during a gaming session.
