hey guys im kinda at the end of the rope here as far as patience goes, last night i finished installing the 64 bit version of windows professional on my laptop.
i had purchased 4GB of RAM from newegg, OCZ PC2 6400 800 (2x 2GB) @ 1.8v, to make better use of the OS, i previously had 2 GB of PC2 5300s (2x 1GB) that i believe was running at 667 1.8v.
my knowledge on computers is very basic, so i thought the RAM i had purchased was fine. while still running vista i installed one of the modules bringing me up to 3 GB, it ran fine so i thought i was OK. then after i finished installing 7 i installed the second module and thats when it failed to startup correctly. i removed one and replaced it with one of the original modules and was OK again.
confused i checked online and found that i probably had purchased RAM that was running at the incorrect frequency. now i need to return it and buy a new pair, can you guys help me choose the right one?
