2 Sticks of RAM Causes Crashing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So after posting a few times about crashing issues I found the problem: When I have one stick of RAM plugged in to my motherboard it runs perfectly fine. When I plug both in to get 16GB of RAM...Windows won't even start. I get a blue screen pretty much immediately. I have no idea what the issue is. Never ran into anything like this before. I'm using a Gigabyte B450M Gaming. Any ideas of what I can change in the BIOS maybe to fix it?

 

I should also add that I've plugged in both sticks individually and had no problems. Also tried to change the positions of the sticks...still crashes when both are in. When one is in, it doesn't matter.

 

Thanks guys!

My words of advice:

Don't buy Cherry Browns.

Don't play Overwatch. I've hate the game yet I play it every day.

Wireless > Lighter Mice

Silence > Temps for Coolers

Get a good PSU

The motherboard might be a dud, or perhaps the ram slots just isn't getting the juice it needs from the power supply for some reason. When you tried using both sticks individually, did you try each in both slots?

That would be a bummer. I have tried using them in both slots and it works fine. Do you think I could increase voltage or so to get them power?

You might as well try it. You've got nothing to lose at this point. I would also try running a boot time scan with windows defender, just to rule out a virus for the hell of it.
