Set the RAM timings/voltages to default in your BIOS

I can't edit the RAM voltages in my BIOS , my motherboard is not supporting that..
i have a motherboard that already was build in my pc when i bought it.
I want to buy a new motherboard but i want to be sure that it solves my problem.
of course if there are any other sollutions for me ,please tell.

Boot into your BIOS setup... you should see an option to return all values to their default settings... reset them, reboot and test... Let us know how you come out...

Are the RAM modules compatible with your motherboard?

it's compatible as the bios shows the 4096 mb , but i believe that the voltages are not. the default sticks of ram that were inside were not too much of a high quality, i guess 1 to 1.5 volt, so with a motherboard that doesn't even have a brand (packard bell ready-to-go pc), it might not support such voltages. the blue screens only occur when i have both of the sticks installed (2 slots, 2 sticks), which makes the 4096 MB. when i have only one installed, it works flawlessly, and my idea of having 1 work and 1 defective was proven wrong as ive tested just a single stick setup, after 1 hour of testing and no blue screens, i swapped it for the other stick, did the testing and both seemed to work fine, but combined, blue screens every 10 minutes. in my opinion the sticks themselves are okay, it might be the motherboard voltage settings (which i can't change, this motherboard as a very limited bios with very near to no features), my low-wattage power supply (250 watts) that has to feed my graphics card (GTS250) with an extra power connection, 6-pin, all together possibly stressing it out too much
