I currently have a EVGA p55 le motherboard. I had installed 2x2gig and 1x1gig OCZ memory sticks with the 2x2 gigs in the zero and second slots and the 1x1gig in the first. I recently installed a second 1x1gig in the last slot. I started the PC and windows booted just fine, but when I started to open applications, the system froze and rebooted. I then placed the 2x2gigs in the zero and third slots and the 2x1gigs in the first and second slots. Same issue. I have also tried just installing the single 1x1gig stick with the 2x2gigs and the system boots and operates just fine, no matter which stick is used.
What's funny is that I can use explorer (accessing the hard drives) but the minute I start chrome or something else, then it shuts down. Does it matter which slot I place the memory sticks in? Also the 2x2gigs are 1066 speeds and the 2x1gigs are 1333 speeds. Does that matter? and does the fact that they are different sizes matter?
I'm still running the MemTest86+ but it has come up with an error the specifics are:
Tst | Pass | Failing Address | Good | Bad | Err-Bits | Count Chan
8 | 0 | 0016fe58418 - 5886.3MB | 542f429c | 542f4263 | 000000ff | 1
What exactly does this mean, and how should I approach?
Also my bios revision is A70, i understand that A59 had issues.
