4 Gb is enough RAM to run 64 bit with no problems. Unless you are running a heavy CAD program or something similar, 4 Gb is fine.

Agree with Carl, your RAM is fine.

Minimum RAM recommended with x64 is 2GB.

I would definately stay with x64.

Unless your running 10-15 programs at the same time, heavy graphics or drawing programs like CAD, your RAM is just fine.

So, sounds like BS to me.

Didn't get time to send off my RAM..
When i turn my pc on i just wait for blue screen..then turn it off, then back on again and its fine.
But could this damage my RAM after time?

It will probably not damage your RAM. It is the same as rebooting as far as your RAM is concerned.

That won't damage your RAM any more than it is now.

Cold boot BSoDs are usually caused by bad RAM, sometimes fixed by adjusting the settings, you adjusted the settings to max and still get BSoDs.

If left as is, it will normally get worse.

You should RMA the RAM.
