    If this is the memory that causes the BSOD, how can I prove it? Because I bought my barbone MSI laptop from gentech PC, and they should know as profesionnals than mixing ram may cause BSOD??
    I agree that it is a very poor practice to intentionally sell machines configured like that. (RAM makers do not even support very similar of their own, together.)

    In many cases (always variables, which motherboard, which memory, programs ran, how the machine is used, on and on and on - though) you can tweak the bios to accept both RAM types well together. It could be a lot of trial and error to get success or even with a lot of trying, there could be no success.

    Believe me when I tell you - 16 GB is extremely a lot of RAM. Unless you are using the machine to serve a website with traffic or serving out a database of many users, or things along those lines - or if you use the machine in a personal highly unusual way like have 203497349734 programs opened at once lol, 16 GB is still overkill.

    You can easily prove it if and when the machine is stable with only one type. The results would therefore speak for themselves.

    Actually I am not affraid to do not have enough ram but the thing is I paid for the 8gb that I removed just now from my laptop...
    We will see if the BSODs still occur, but if not I will for sure contact the seller!
    Wait and see...
    Thank you for your advices, patience and availability !

    PS : I will wait to see or not if there still BSOD but if not I can reinstall realtek audio driver and my logitech hardware/software right?

    Now maybe Gentech stops selling machines configured like that. Would be nice.

    You're welcome.

Power Plan Affecting WiFI? in Performance & Maintenance
I was on a balanced power plan on my laptop while streaming on Netflix from my xbox. I couldn't get on any site on the laptop but I was able to use my iphone. On a hunch I switched to high performance and it works. Not sure if there is a relationship between power and the wifi on my laptop.

Switching Power Plan Shortcut in General Support
I have a Dell XPS 13 and the F3 button has a battery sign on it. Pressing it brings up some battery meter property which does not really help as a day-to-day shortcut. Is there any way I can change that to toggling between two of my Power Plans ("Power Saving, High Performance") each time I press?
What Power Plan do you use? in Performance & Maintenance
As title suggests, what power plan do you normally use on Windows 8? Do you switch between power plans depending on the situation at hand? I run Balanced most of the time, since my AMD CPU has Cool'N'Quiet technology, then switch over to High Performance when gaming.
