okay so awhile ago combat arms was working fine and whatnot with 3gb of mem.. but it was causing a blue screen when playing Wow for like 2 mins and CA for like 10 mins.. so changed to 2gb memory and now i dont get blue screen.. WoW works fine but im having 1-2 min map load times on CA where as before it would take 10 secs to load... help?
Uh the First 20 secs of gameplay are really laggy after that its fine... in every game this happens.. as for the memory we actually had two 2gb corsair memory in there.. i was told by my brother that xp only reads up to 3gb tho.. i dont know much about the sticks but it says xms2 6400.. DDR2 memory 2048 mb i dont know what he put in all i know is that theres 2gb in there now
also the memory was changed because he felt that was what was causing the problem .. and i guess it was because after we changed the memory the blue screens stopped happening.. also dont know if it matters but im using a ATI Radeon HD 4850 video card
This has happened to me and I have solved it. The best way to fit ram into your hc sxc gaming rig is to have ram sticks in pairs/duals with same memory size, brand and model. You would rather have 2*1gb ram sticks than 1*2gb coz that fks your pc up. If it is 2*1 it should be the same brand and model. You wouldn't put a G Skill 1 gb with a Kingston 1 gb. Even within brands there are many different models. They have to be the SAME model no matter what.
