Lately, I mounted 2 stick of ram from one MB to a Asus MB with a AMD Athlon
4400, and I got the system either not starting (kernel panic) or, when it
started, I soon had bad memory access, and the system would freeze. I put new
ram in and everything was OK, except I was frustrated to have lilled the
memories. First time it happended to me. Then I tried to put them back in,
and I changed the memory voltage in the bios from auto to 2 V. And, guess
what, they worked fine, and are still in!!!
