Sorry went out of town again for the weekend. No i forgot to tell you that I noticed my PC randomly reads the 6gb fully, and at other times not. So im guessing just one of them is really messed up. I have redocked them. Im having someone come in tomorrow after I get home. At this point im thinking just one of the sticks are bad. I will let you know what I find out tomorrow.

It is sure to be one of the sticks... though sometimes it's as simple as a bad connection in the slot. Cleaning and re-seating could fix that. Let us know?

Hey so i just got done. We reseated them and it seems fine for now. I will let you know if it crashes again. Atm it is reading ALL 6gb and is running fine. ALl I can do now is just use my pc as normal until something happens. Again everything is re-seated, and the pc is running 6gb. Thanks for your help so far. I will let you know if a crash happens again. Also I wont deem this solved until it goes at least a week without crashing. Just to be safe.

Just a status update. So far no crashing. My pc is still using all 6 gigs properly. Hopefully it continues to do well. Also is there anything I can do for like for feedback for you or the site?
