Hi All

I had my 2gb Crucial Ballistix RAM stop working so i went out and bought 4GB G.Skill RAM (2X2GB) but as soon as i installed it my pc started working VERY slow, like it takes it 5 minutes to start windows and anything after that is very slow.

I have an Asus P5B MB with a Core 2 Duo Intel cpu,
4GB G.skill DDR2 Ram
Win 7 32Bit Ultmt

I reset the bios to default just in case i had some over clocking from last time but it didnt help, Any ideas?

Do you know what voltage the RAM needs to be running at to work correctly. This should be somewhere on the website that you bought it or on the packaging. A lot of high performance DDR2 RAM requires a higher voltage to work properly and this may be what is causing your problem.

Hey there, That RAM requires 1.8-1.9v to run correctly. It might be worth having a look in your BIOS and seeing what voltage the RAM is set at now and then correcting it if nesacarry.

Thanks for the reply jack-o-bytes. I enabled remapping and it seems to work fine now
