1x256 mb ram=ok, but 2x256 mb ram=crash!
 
Epox 8RDA+: Having formatted the hard drive and installed Windows XP + SP 1 and all the latest drivers and updates, my system freezes at various times when the motherboard is equipped with 2 sticks of 256 mb DDR 2100 Apacer ram. However, with just 1 stick (in bank 0) it is rock stable!

2 sticks of 256 mb DDR 2700 Samsung ram produced exactly the same result, i.e. freezing, while just 1 stick was - once again - rock stable.

I have tried to move the 2 sticks to bank 1 (non-dual mode), but this did not solve the problem.

I am completely stuck by now - please help!

Yes, and each stick works fine individually.

But whenever I add the second stick, the system freezes right after Windows XP has booted.

Sometimes XP reboots automatically and in this case I get to see the blue screen (for a second or two!) with the following message:

"...
driver_irql_not_less_or_equal
..."
