I recently bought a Dell Inspiron 531 (AMD X2 64 5000+ 1GB RAM 250GB Geforce 8800GT 512MB) which supposedly supports DDR 800. The 1GB was not enough so I proceeded to buy some OCZ 2 Platinum revision 2 DDR2 2GB (2x1GB) dual channel kit but when I went to install it, the PC would not boot. I kept getting blue screens sorta like
The error message has some artifacting as well.
The system will just not boot with even one stick of hte OCZ DDR800 sticks, however if I put in the stock Dell DDR2 667 it will boot. Upon booting though I can't complete things like the Vista Performance because it gives errors.
What do you guys think my Mobo is just incompatible or that I have faulty ram? Remember it is not just one stick, I can try either solo and they still have issues.
More info on my system is available at:
