Re: Blue screens in XPS 8700 after memory upgrade

having the exact same problem, only difference being the serial numbers.

was 99.5% confident this memory would be compatible.

hoping someone knowledgeable can give this thread a fresh look, as the last reply was not answered. is it possible there is a tweak that can be done to the memory timing that will help? i'm grasping at straws, obviously. 

i will reinstall the old sticks, but is it best to contact kingston about this, or will they just say it must be one of my drivers, etc.? will dig a bit to see if this is a more widely known issue. thx for reading.

Need more info:

  • Is this an XPS 8700?
  • How much RAM did you have?
  • How much did you add?
  • Are you using a supported RAM configuration for this model?
  • Exactly what BSOD are you getting?
  • Version of Windows?
  • What happens when you only use the old RAM?
  • What happens when you only use the new RAM (in same slots originally occupied by the old RAM)?

There are no options to adjust memory times on Dell PCs.
