I down voted you because you're talking nonsense.

@lemur
you think yourself an expert..really... but what you did was really cheap one.. shame on you..


Lemur actually does work in system administration, and his comment was quite helpful.

@blackcomp
i write this to mr.lemur because he has voted me down for no reason..
even you can check my post .. there is only a little mistake('ur')..for this i have warned by mr.tlhIn`toq.
i even apologize.

may be my answer was wrong as i was making a guess but
Being an Administation expert he should encourage newbi insted of being discourage them.

i was giving explanation because i don't want to leave this site being a defaulter.

@erik venn - it happens.. by 'it' I mean we encounter people that ascribe to a different paradigm for living and interactions. If that upsets you enough to bail then so be it, but, personally, I would learn from it and become better than I was before. Either way - cest la vie.

Um, before you leave, Check the mother board for any blown capacitors. A blown cap can cause random BSOD.

What blown capacitors look like

I think you should first find out what your motherboard permits as far as max memory capacity and compatible frequencies
You can do this by downloading: SiSandra or Speccy ( both are free)
Run a scan and see what your motherboard is like.
Based on that you can easily make your choice when buying ram
say if your motherboard only permits 8 GB max and it is allows Dual Channel
then you should buy 4GB x 2 and take advantage of dual channel memory
also, check what frequencies your motherboard can use
say 1333 MHz or 1600Mhz
when you do choose one and are not sure about the PC rating
just remember it is the base frequency mutiplied by 8
or the PC rating divided by 8 (if you wish to find out the base frequency)
it wit also have a digit after the PC i.e. PC3-10666
that also indicate whether its DDR3 or DDR2 or DDR (double data rate)
Also try to get DIMMs with a low Cas Latency ( i.e. 9)
I hope this was useful.
