    I recently bought 256 MB DDR ram as my previously one stopped working. now after 2 month my computer hangs up after 3 to 5 minutes after windows have started.

    What might be the problem. Is it because of the ram.

    Should i re-install windows.

    Plz help me out.

    well ya try reinstalling windows xp and get sp2
    now if the problem persists try getting another RAm which u doubt mebbe the reason, and plug tht stick in ur mobo n check

    well i had the same prob with my 800mhz p3 processor 2 yrs back, did everything i cod to diagnose the problem and finally got a solution to my prob by changing the processor and degrading it with my spare 400Mhz processor :x . man i just codnt blive my processor got screwed :shock:

    i just dun want to shock u but this was the case wid me

    mebbe the prob which u have is jsut cause of a faulty ram mebbe theres no prob itself

    Alive_Hunter I suggest you do a memory diagnostic such as Memtest to make sure that your RAM is indeed the problem.Or else it might be something else thats causing the crash.

    It could be a number of things, CPU overheating, memory modules incompatibility. I recommend you install Sisoft Sandra and determine your problem.

    try the ramsticks at a friends place & run any memory intensive game of software.if it hangs get new sticks.
    also u said u have 256mb ram,is it two 128 mb sticks or a single stick?
    if u have 2 sticks then check out if they are of the same make.
    if not xchange them.
    as a last option reinstall xp.dont forget SP2.

    <<<peace>> :)
