Depends.

Does your motherboard support 667?

Also there is no point mixing the two as the motherboard will always run at the speed of the slowest stick (533)

There is still no point putting in 667 if the rest is 533. All the sticks run at the speed of the slowest one.

e.g if you had 3 sticks of 667 and 1 stick of 533 your machine would run at 533

In order to use dual channel both modules must have the exact same specs. Most people will purchase "dual channel kits" as they are matched pairs and are generally less expensive than purchasing the modules separately.

From the way that you phrased your question I'm not sure what you are really asking.

First off a "kit" is two modules of the same make and model that the manufacturer has bundled, these assure the buyer that they will work in dual channel which requires two modules with the exact same specs.

If you are asking if dual channel is better than running single modules, yes.

Just curious here, did you skip school on those days when grammar was taught, or are you studying English as a second language?

Dual channell is fast but they modules need to be the same for you to get dual channel. if they arent the same specs you wont get dual channel performance.

e.g

if you have a mix of 678 and 533 you dont get dual channel

i think his english is ok dcc leave him alone

M$ lists these possible causes.

• If this issue occurs after the first restart during Windows Setup, or after Setup is finished, the computer may not have sufficient hard disk space to run Windows.
• If this issue occurs after the first restart during Windows Setup, or after Setup is complete, the computer BIOS may be incompatible with Windows.
• Incompatible video adapter drivers.
• Damaged RAM.
• A damaged device driver or system service.
• If the issue is associated with the Win32k.sys file, it may be caused by a third-party remote control program.

Check to see how much free space you have on you hdd.

Download Memtest86 and run it for several hours.

If the seller will allow you to return the module you can usually get a better deal purchasing a "dual channel kit", if not just purchase another of the same modules...it they are suggested by the manufacturer for your motherboard.

Go to Crucial and use their configurator, you will need to enter your make and model of you computer.

Most all major manufacturers will have a similar means of determining the compatibility of their modules to you machine.
