I have a 2 gig stick of ram and a 4 gig stick. The 4 gig keeps giving me a memory management error (BSoD) when it's hooked in. Is there a way to fix this or should I just replace my ram? I current;y have the 4 gig out (for obvious reasons) and only the 2 gig in. My PC is so much slower without the 4 gig.

well if you want to make sure its faulty you can run a memory test, this is one of the best.

http://www.memtest86.com/

or just the standard windows mem test

Use memtest86, if you see any errors remove the faulty RAM. If you don't want to trash it, try to test it on another PC and see if the errors are still present.

>try the 4GB stick in different RAM slots
If that fails
>Download and use memtest86
If that gives the same error in different slots, It's probz the RAM. If its different, you might consider trying a different pc as well, as it might be the motherboard (I doubt it)
If all fails,
>trash it
There is no saving it.

"gig" is not a unit of measurement

if you are talking about gigabytes, the abbreviation is "GB"

Not OP but, thanks captain obvious.
also, nice cont.

did you try just the 4GB alone or always with the 2GB

check your RAM settings (timing, frequency) in BIOS/EFI

some chinese bootleg RAM will not set itself up correctly (i.e. try to go faster than it can, and crash)
