Windows 7: BSOD after adding a ram module

BSOD after adding a ram module

So I have a Windows 7 x64 machine, core i5, 4gb of ram recently upgraded to 6gb (more on that later). It was working fine until the new ram module.
I was using two ram modules (2gb x2), and i add a third one (2gb x3), they are the same model and it was a pack of 2gb x3, but for some reason i had only installed two modules and not three.
Si i got the following BSOD and I want to know what it means. Maybe is a ram issue, maybe i should have installed the extra ram dim on the other slot.

Really only three options when you get a BSOD from RAM. Either you have the wrong RAM installed, which doesn't sound like it is the case because they are all matching or the RAM is installed wrong. My guess is that your motherboard requires that RAM be installed in matching pairs, in which case you would need one more stick of RAM that matches the speed and size of the other three. I've run into this problem more than once. Last option would be that you have a bad stick of RAM.

Program from these folks will tell you if that's the case.

Interesting. Does it have something to do with the dual channel. Maybe there is some tweak in the motherboard i can try?

In all of my experience, if a motherboard needs RAM to be installed in matching pairs, there really isn't any way around it. If you don't have the documentation on your motherboard to confirm that you may try RAM Memory Upgrade: Dell, Mac, Apple, HP, Compaq. USB drives, SSD at Crucial.com
They are ~usually~ right about motherboard specs and what you can and cannot do with RAM in your machine. Just fill out the questions on make and model of computer.

You can use a program such as siw to see if they are truly all from the same batch.
