I recently purchased some new RAM for my computer (G.Skill RipJaw 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C8 1333MHz Dual Channel Kit) to replace my computers current 3GB.
It arrived yesterday so I decided to hook it up, on starting my computer with the new RAM in it worked fine and everything was great so I got on with the day and went back later to play some swtor. After playing for a good 2 hours my screen suddenly froze and the picture when all distorted with lines of pink and blue mainly, I turned off my computer and turned it back on to be faced with an options screen to either system repair or start windows as normal.
I've now tried both options, running the system repair will give me a BSOD and the start windows as normal will just get me back to the same screen again.
I tried this a couple more times thinking it could have been something other than the new RAM but on putting my old sticks back in it worked fine.
So I'm wondering if there's anything I can do this fix this issue, thanks for the help.
Thought I should leave my system information here, if there's anything else I can post to help just ask please:
