    Physically remove the slower OCZ module from the machine. Actually complete precisely other advice above without diversion.

    Enjoy.

    Which Instructions? I explained that "Update ATK" isn't possible. I asked you for clarification.

    You can omit that then.

    Assuming the slower module is slower because of the OC settings would it be worth a try to boost it to the same speed?

    So I appear to have been slightly confused, turns out I have four sticks of ram at 2 GB each, one kingston and 3 OCZ, since taking out one stick of OCZ I assumed didn't make sense in that context I took out the two sticks (the 1 kingston and the one OCZ paired with it) that I had put up screenshots for.

    I don't know yet if this will be more stable, but to make sure I have correct drivers I did decide to revert to windows 7 to be cautious and eliminate possible variables.

    Does this seem okay? For completeness here's the two other sticks:

    Not sure why you bothered with installing Windows 7 (unless you simply want it more).

    If there was any driver issue, I would have told you.

    Concept is simple. Don't mix RAM type with other RAM type and you're good to go, so enjoy.

    Some motherboards and chipsets do not demand even number of sticks. Read your manual. Maybe you really can use all 3, but that is doubtful. Worth a check.

    In any case, 4 GB is still well more than rockin' out. More than the "average" internet site would make you believe it is, if you get what I mean. It's good.

    Some more bluescreens, though they have been thankfully significantly rarer.

    Happened during my attempt to install Visual Studios 2012 Ultimate.

    Error code 1a (I didn't get an actual blue screen for some reason even though its set to give me one) the both times, though a third time my computer was in the middle of booting when it just decided to reboot again.

    Wow, what happened? The machine has become a literal mess disaster since I last seen it.

    Lycosa is my Razor keyboard, it has the latest drivers, androidusb was my phone that was plugged in via the usb cable, its unplugged now.

    Rt64win7 I'm guessing was my install of Visual Studio?

    The rest I don't recognize.

    e: Apparently dtsoftbus is daemontools, I've cleaned by startup a bit so it and anything else non-essential will run when windows boots.

    Another one, my phone was plugged in so I have my suspicions. I was also installing LISP interpreter software though.

    Error code 4e.
