Re: BSOD after install of home premium 64 bit OEM
I have a similar problem and wasn't sure if I should just make a new post or
reply to this one. I have the 32 bit version, and when I installed 4 gigs
i've had the same problem. I downloaded the update but I still get the BSOD
with the IRQ_NOT_EQUAL message. I tried taking one stick out and running it
with 3 gigs of ram, and I got the BSOD again, this time with the message
being "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT". I'm currently running with 2GB of ram and hope
that it will at least be stable this way.
Considering I've already downloaded and installed this update, I'm hoping
there are other solutions available that you can help me with =(.
