"normal" ddr2 ram causing windows errors?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so recently i built a secondary media PC. it has a q6600 8 gb of ddr2 and a gts 450. i bought the cpu mobo and ram as a combo (intel mobo) after doing some testing i had to buy a new 4 sticks of ddr2 to get the 8 gb i wanted. now ive gone back to test the previous 4 sticks that came with the cpu and mobo. i got 2 working sticks and one bad stick. but the last one was really strange... this one stick would boot into the bios and everything looked fine but then as soon as i booted into windows the computer blue screened.

 

does anyone know what could cause this and can it be fixed because 2 gb sticks of ddr2 are still semi-valuable.
