Hello,

I don't know mutch about computers and sometimes i ask some guy around here for advice.
But even he don't know it so il try here.
I get Blue screen of death when i put more than 1 ram stick and watch youtube videos.

My spec's:
Asrock 870 extreme3
Amd phenom II X6 1090T
HD 6870
2X 2GB samsung m378b5673fh0-ch9 1024 1.624V
1X 2GB Geil.
Antec earthswatt 500W 80+
Windows 7 64bit


Hope for some awnsers. :wahoo:
 
Your mixing ram brands, plus using 3 out of 4 ram slots. Better to use matched pairs with the same timing. Newegg and frys both had 16 gb kits on sale today, but they've probably sold out by now.

O so i should only use one brand?
But i also get the same problems when i only use the samsung cards and neither working in single or dual mode.
My pc refuse to use 2 ram it can only use 1:(
 
That's a different issue. One stick may be bad. Try each stick of the original ram in dimm slot one and run memtest to check for errors. When all four slots are populated, it is better to use identical sticks. And don't leave one ram slot open. Your board won't run in dual channel mode with one or three ram sticks. And return or sell the registered stick of ram.
