    Strange boot kernel error after activating 1866 megahertz RAM in BIOS


    I recently installed 16GB DDR3 RAM (2x8GB) and it's 1866 megahertz speed. In my Gigabyte AMD motherboard BIOS, I selected an 1866 RAM "Profile". It usually is 1600, which was the speed of the old RAM. Upon booting, I got a very strange Windows 10 64 bit Pro error, something about a "Kernel problem". I've never seen it before. I rebooted, and switched it back to 1600, and then it worked. I was using the RAM in channels 3 and 4. I plan to install two more 8GB sticks for a full 32GB.

    Does anyone know what this error was? And is it safe to try the 1866 profile again once all four sticks are in?

    :)

    Kernel security check failure after ram upgrade

    I just experienced the same problem with a Sony Vaio running Win10. I replaced the 4Gb of RAM with 8Gb of RAM. The RAM is matched to the MB. On boot Windows starts initially and then defaults to error screen with Kernel Security Check Failure. Setup correctly
    identifies the 8Gb of RAM. This must be a Microsoft security feature to prevent motherboard upgrades. Any suggestions short of re-installing Windows?

    I replaced my Win10 hard drive with my old Win7 hard drive and everything boots up successfully. This would confirm that the problem is with Windows 10 and not the new RAM.

    Strange boot kernel error after activating 1866 megahertz RAM in BIOS

    Several Kernel Errors within a day?


    Lets get back to this troubleshooting step *Arrow Several Kernel Errors within a day? - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums
    The result was a working system in safe mode, though the GPU isn't used in safe mode.
    Please perform a clean boot again, watch the temperatures at all times (if you didn't yet) and from there we'll see what needs to be done. Please do not enable anything in taskmanager & msconfig, I want you to boot without any startup items & services enabled.

    What was the BSOD stop code? Based on the BSOD stop code I'll edit the suggestion in this post.
