A few months ago I started a thread about my PC rebooting a few times while loading windows, see it here. This issue still hasn't been sorted.
So I ended up taking one 2gb RAM stick out and selling it to a friend (works perfectly in his PC) and that solves my problem too.
So now I only have 2gb RAM (unfortunately, this makes a huge difference!).
I'd like to know if my system is running at its optimal speed at the moment.
Now I'll admit, I'm a total noob!
I just opened CPU-Z and checked a few things there. Not that I understand most of it
My CPU's bus speed is 132mhz,
My memory 's DRAM frequency is around 660
RAM ratio is 2:10
i-5 760 (2.8ghz)
Intel dh-55th motherboard
Kingston ddr3 2gb
Geforce GTS 250
Is this optimal performance?
While we're at it, can someone explain the use of dual channel memory to me? Should I rather sell this RAM stick too and buy two new ones for dual channel?
When I get some cash I will take my PC in and buy more RAM (either another 2GBs of RAM, or two sets of 2GBs for dual channel), but I want to test it in store first to be sure the rebooting problem doesn't return.
