Windows 7: Occasional Kernel 41 crashes but always in memory disgnostic

07 Oct 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit SP1

Take one "good" ram stick and try it in all the slots.

Then do the same with other ram stick.

Do this with all the ram sticks.

Just one at the time.

I have 3gb made up of 2 x 1gb and 2 x 512gb (the original memory).""

This ram combination is not the best for your system,is better to have 4x1gb.

Thanks. The manual says, if I read it correctly, that I must have a stick in slot 1; is that the case?

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit SP1

Take one ram stick and plug-test it in slot 1
Then the same ram stick plug\test it in slot 2
Then the same ram stick plug\test it in slot 3
Then the same ram stick plu\test it in slot 4

Then take any other ram stick and do the same thing.

Do this with all your ram sticks.

This way you will test all the ram sticks and all the ram slots in motherboard.
