  1. Hello Fellow Tech Gurus!I am having a huge headache after upgrading the ram memory of my m17x r3. First let me start by saying I have been experiencing issues with my current ram setup recently, and so i decided to replace the ram inside of my computer, thinking they had gone out on me. It originally came with x4 2gb memory sticks, and as I started to experience issue, I started to removed them, and I was down to 1 2gb stick. It seems to me ram slots 1 & 2 are not working properly as when I put ram memory into them I would get BSOD in 5-10 mins of computer usage after boot. So I am thinking the slots have gone out. I also tested each slot individually and still same effect.So I went on the try out slots 3 & 4 under the keyboard, which seems to work just fine when I use only 1 ram chip in one or the other. But the problem occurs when I try and fill both ram slots in slots 3 & 4 under the keyboard with crucial 2x 8 gb of ram sticks, which total to 16gb total ram memory.BSOD and freezing occurs like crazy. But if I use just one of the ram sticks in either slot, no problem.I dunno if this is hardware or software. I am think that my motherboard is on its way out the door, but any suggestions you all have would be great. I have already clean installed win 7, and is currently running bios A10 (unlocked, I believe)I would also like to note that my motherboards internal vga is not detected, and just noticed this a few days ago upon trying to figure out the ram situation.other issues is my laptop battery is pretty much dead, and the only for my computer to cut on is if the AC adapter is connectedI would also like to know can 1x 16gb 1600 ram stick run in my computer? or is it not supported by my motherboard? thanks!Specs:Alienware M17xR3 (2011 3D FHD ed) Service Tag: 30W75Q1 Bios ver:A10 (should be unlocked) Operating SystemMicrosoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) ProcessorIntel® Core™ i7-2960XM CPU @ 2.70GHz ChipsetIntel® 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family GraphicsNvidia GTX 680m AudioIDT High Definition Audio CODEC High Definition Audio Device Networking and I/ODW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20) HMA TAP-Windows Adapter V9 MemoryCrucial 8 GB (x2 qty) DDR3 PC3-12800 • CL=11 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1600 • 1.35V • 1024Meg x 64 • (these only work under bay 3 or 4, but not dual 8gb at the same time, otherwise BSOD) Configuration ID: CT3283724 StorageWDC WDBNCE5000PNC SSD (installed into bay 0)
  2. Hi all So I just got myself a ram upgrade for the laptop which is a mech-15hs, and to my disappointment, it doesnt support XMP, but would thaiphoon burner enable that? The chips I bought are supposed to "auto-overclocked" to highest potential, but obviously it just stays stock without xmp. These are the chips: https://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/HX426S15IB2_16.pdf The PNP profile is 15-17-17-35-60-467 & 2666mhz and thats the same first timings as the first xmp profile at 15-17-17, so is there any point of even getting thaiphoon burner at this point? Or would using that enable xmp and auto overclock and such? The CPU is an i7-7700hq, and I dont think anyone has gotten past 2666mhz with it anyway, so am I just beating a dead horse with TB? Or are my chips really that good out the box?

    Y510p RAM upgrading

    Does anyone know if I can smack 2x16gb(32gb) ddr3l sodimm into the y510p without issue? Yes the documentation states it's upgradable to 16gb maximum, but surely that's bs, I mean the 4700Mq is capable of 32gb RAM so what's the problem? I read some speculation online on various forums, but can anyone confirm it is possible? I'm just scared to buy the RAM if it's not going to work. Thanks InB4 "you don't need that much RAM" I do.
  4. Hello, my HP 8770w was sold with a Dualcore-CPU. I am now using an i7 3920XM, but there are missing two RAM-holdings on this mainboard (Many manufactures leave them out on dualcore MBs ). The 4-RAM-MB is too expensive just for this approach. So I tried to solder the missing RAM-Holdings on the Mainboard by hand: But the Laptop does not boot, if I add a RAM to the new holding (Same behaviour as like booting without any RAM). The Laptop still works, if I left the new holding empty. QUESTION: Is it possible, that a 3-RAM-configuration principally does not work and I will have to add the 4th module? Have anyone here successfully expanded the number of RAM-holdings?
  5. Hello everyone, I already have 16GB inside, wanted to know if it worthy to spend over 200 bucks to upgrade my alienware m18x r2 with 32GB 2133MHz Kingston HyperX Impact Black? Best regards and thank you
  6. Is it OK to mix RAM of same speed, but different size and manufacturers? Will it degrade my overall RAM performance? My current 8GB stick is in slot #2.

    GX740 RAM upgrade problems

    Hi everyone I have some problems upgrading the RAM from my GX740 (Board: MS-1727). It came with 4GB of RAM, which sometimes is a bit too little, so i thought I could upgrade it to 8 GB. On my old RAM is written 1333mhz and a friend of me has some with 1333mhz, he gave me to test. Strange is, when i look on the clockspeed during the running OS it's at 1066mhz. (Does it clock down? Nevermind, thats not the mainproblem) Now the problem is, when the new RAM is installed, my laptop turns on normal, but as soon as the Windowsbootlogo (Win8.1) appears, it crashes with a nice BSOD. When i boot into my linux, it boots correctly but short after you log in it crashes too. The RAM is ok, because it worked well in an other machine, but when I run Memtest86+ in my machine with the new RAM it even refuses to start the test (error after one second and stops). Is the RAM just incompatible with my board, or is there a possibility to fix that problem with an unlocked BIOS? thanks in advance rik PS: Sorry if there are some english mistakes, my swiss-english isn't that good
  8. Still patiently wait for my NP8268-S to come in the mail, should only be a couple days away now. As ive been waiting, ive been thinking about all the mods im going to be completing on it. Then I had noticed I have alot of laptop RAM laying around the house, and just wanted to get a idea from everyone on the boards here, on which way I should go. 1- Stick with the stock ram thats coming with it, (2x4) 8gb ddr3 1333, Dont know what manufacture. 2- Swap in (2x8) 16gb ddr3 1333 Crucial ram? 3- Swap in (2x4) 8gb ddr3 1600 Ramaxel ram? Im tempted to swap in the faster Ramaxel ram.... but then again dont know if thats going to be of any benefit to going with slightly slower, double the ram 16gb? Also Ive never even heard of Ramaxel, I dont know if there a good manufacture, or "re branding" of ram units. Please bare with me in this probably simple question. Ive built many desktops, laptops, for myself / friends / work, but stopped about 8 years ago. So in that 8 years some things have changed, and are new to me, and im still trying to get a handle on whats in the market today. Primarily the naming nightmare, lol i7 this, i3 that, gtx 780m is a re branded what?.... lol so on, and so on. Thank you for any help of insight.
  9. Ok guys and girls, my Alienware laptop got fried today so I am left without a computer and since I am out of the desktop game for a long time now I need your assistance to build one. What I need to get is: CPU, Motherboard, RAM and PSU. My budget for those is €1300. Based on the CPU I would like to hear your suggestions: 1st option i7 4770K (€310) 2nd option i7 4930K (€540) RAM can be between 8-16 GB (preferably 2 modules for the 16GB) DDR3 1866 or more. (no more than €200) PSU I was thinking Corsair AX Series 1200i Digital (€325) (or should I go with the cheaper professional series?) Motherboard I was thinking about Asus Rampage IV Gene if I go with with the 2nd CPU option, so I am up to suggestions (up to €320) About CPU cooling I believe a Corsair H100i (€110) will suffice. Thanks again for your suggestions.

    MSI GX740 upgrading RAM problem

    Hi guys. I bought new memory for my nb MSI GX740 with core i5 m460 processor. I have 4GB (2x2GB) of RAM and i bought 8GB (2x 4GB) ddr3 (PC3-10600S), but it isn't work. I mean win7 starts normally, but it is unstable - blue screen etc. I have already installed actual bios - 1.0F from MSI website, but new memory still not work properly. Any ideas why? I have checked it on GE70, and new RAM is ok.
  11. Hey everyone! so i was thinking of buying an Alienware M14x pretty soon. I was just wondering if there really is a difference of a single 6GB DDR3 @1600MHz and a 4/8GB Dual Channel DDR3 @1600MHz. Is it worth getting the extra RAM if i change the GB from 4 to 6 or 8? Or would it not matter much? and also, for the video card, should i stay at the 1.5GB DDR3 nVidia Geforce GT555 or get the 3GB one? Is there much of a difference in performance? I would only be playing Black Ops and MW3 when it comes out. Thanks for the help everyone!
  12. Some people are saying that the M14 i7 processor 2630 can support 1600/1866 mhz memory, but others say it is not possible. I found this: Kingston HyperX 8GB 1866MHz PnP Memory Kit For Notebooks - Sandy Bridge Notebooks Get HyperX Treatment - Legit Reviews and this: Kingston HyperX 8GB 1866MHz PnP performance with Sandy Bridge According to previous reviews ... YES it can...? But, intel says NO: Compare Intel® Products Is it worth it? Does it increase the performance significantly? what do you think? I'm thinking of buying this: CORSAIR 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 for $82 but if the M14 supports 1600/1866mhz i rather buy one of them
