Please help me:
I had 2x 2GB sticks of Apacer RAM, than I wanted to upgrade to 2x 4GB Crucial. But after booting I had problem with noise and lines all over my screen... I tried also 2+4GB mode, everything works fine, but Everest benchmark has shown not as good results as in 2x2GB mode. What should I do, to make it work with 8 GB of RAM?
My specs are: Windows 8 Pro 64-bit, 263 BIOS, AMD Sempron 2000 MHz, 480 GB Kingston SSD, ATI Radeon Xpress 1150, latest possibe graphic card driver (10-2_legacy_vista32-64_dd_ccc)

This system does not support 8G of RAM -- if you can get 2+4 working (6 total) that's beyond what it was designed for. You're lucky that works!
It was designed to work with 8 GB: "With BIOS 2.6.3, it is capable of utilizing 8 GB with a 64-bit operating system." And I have both of it - BIOS 2.6.3 and 64-bit Windows...
(Dell Inspiron 1501) Actually,it will,with a 64 bit operating system. I've installed a AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-66 2.3 GHz Dual-Core Processor,along with 8gb. ram,and Zorin/Linux OS,and it's quick. Bio's must be 2.6.3 for this to work. Dell horribly underrated this board.
