XMP Troubleshooting – How to Fix Black Screens, Blue Screens and Random Crashing After Enabling XMP – GSM FRP



So you just enabled your RAM’s XMP hoping to squeeze a little extra extra performance out of your PC but after rebooting you see nothing but a black screen. Or maybe your computer booted up just fine afterward but whenever you’re playing a game or running certain applications your computer crashes out to the desktop or your greeted by the dreaded blue screen of death!? Some of you watching this video very well may have learned what XMP is and how to enable it by watching my video about it so if you’re experiencing problems after enabling XMP I’m back to help you fix them. I know these problems can be concerning, especially the black screen thing, but don’t worry getting your system working properly again is pretty simple. In this video I explain why these problems sometimes occur after enabling XMP (or DOCP if you have an Asus motherboard and an AMD Ryzen CPU) and what to do to fix it. Including how to get your PC working again if you have nothing but a black screen going on. That, by the way, requires clearing your motherboards CMOS. πŸ™‚

If you need some help removing and then reinstalling your graphics card to get to your clear CMOS pins or CMOS battery here’s the link to my graphics card upgrading video that will help you with that.

  2. i have a question im buying ram and it says alienware xmp 4 but on my system and every other alienware system its says just xmp. is this the same thing? because the ram i bought and already have is the same speed, brand, and both ddr4 so even if its 2 different xmp's can it be mixed?

  3. Yoooo I bought a 4 pack of trident z royals for my pc and had this problem and thought I messed something up or the ram was bad so I researched it and couldn’t find anything that could help me so I returned it and have been too scared to try again
