On a side note, mismatched pairs might cause this .... bank's 0-1 need to
match each other in speed/size and banks 2-3 have to match each other but
banks 0-1 don't have to match banks 2-3 ... (e.g. My desktop has 2 2GB
Modules and 2 1GB modules for a total of 6gb (in my case they are the same
speed all across (DDR2/800)
