I recently had random BSOD's so I tested my RAM to see if any sticks were bad, and memtest DID detect a bad stick so I tossed the set out and bought a brand spanking new set of G-Skill Ripjaw's to replace my old Muskin RAM.
But as soon as I boot up with the new RAM my computer will instantly power off, wait a few seconds, and then automatically power on again only to instantly power off a few seconds later. This cycle will continue going unless I pull the power cord from my PSU.
So I opened up the case and tried using different slots but the problem still persisted. Then I decided the Ripjaws were bad so I used a TOTALLY different brand of RAM to test it out. The cycle still continues.
Oddly enough, if I leave one stick in there the computer will run perfectly fine. In fact I'm using the computer right now to type this all out. But as soon as I slap in the second stick my computer will revert to it's old cycle and constantly reboot itself.
Advice, anyone? If any more info is needed I can happily provide it for you. I'll be refreshing this tab as I do some college homework.
