0x1a is a pretty common error, usually pointed to drivers but really it can be a side effect of hardware issues. 0x4e is usually a memory or hard drive error, in either case it could definitely cause the first one. I'd suggest starting by testing the RAM - Vista does come with a Memory Diagnostics Tool, although you may want to try Memtest as well.

Windows did ask me to run a memory test and it did find problems. but it didnt specify which bank slot or what the problems are.

also ive ran system mechanic 7 and it shows a hard drive error (doesnt specify either) and it doesnt want to be fixed. (dont know if this has anything to do with the blue screen) ?

Your system is nice. I would go into BIOS and set the memory voltage to mfg. specs. Maybe 2.0-2.1 volts.

Memtest should tell you which (if not both) stick(s) is giving you trouble, although as badge hinted it might be a settings/stability issue rather than broken hardware.

I went into BIOS and i didnt see a memory voltage setting. What i did see is a option to set all system voltage to auto or manual ? if i put it in manual it gives me the chance to change the voltage for something with a DDR2 & DDR3, but it doesnt let me change it to 2.0 or 2.1 it lets me change it by 0.1, 0.2, ect.

i did the memtest and it said, Test 4 = 88 errors, test 5 = 104 errors

thats it :( 

any further help would be appreciated all.

The memtest errors are a giveaway, you have malfunctioning RAM. I just did the same test and RMA'd some of my RAM to Crucial earlier this week. It was RAM causing my system crashes. Memtest confirmed it. AS soon as I took the bad DIMM out, the crashes ceased. You should try each DIMM individually. It may be only one bad DIMM instead of both. You will have to RMA the Ram or have it replaced through Corsair's warranty. Try bumping up the RAM voltage a few notches (.2, etc.) in BIOS and see if it helps.

theres only one problem, i dont see any ram voltage in my BIOS, unless its under another name ? but either way i checked everything and its not like i can set it by 2.0, each bios settings gives me weird numbers starting by 0.1, 0.2, 0.3 , ect..

any further help please ?

You can often tell which stick is bad by where in memory the error occurs, although in practice it is best to test each stick individually.

I downloaded the manual for your motherboard and checked it out. The setting you want is under MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T.), DDR2/DDR3 Overvoltage Control, which you would want to raise up in 0.1v increments. You might also want to take a look at the "system memory multiplier" as I'm not sure how that board will handle your RAM.

thank you verry much but i already found what the problem was. according to this motherboard it supports DDR2/DDR3 1066Mhz, 800Mhz, 667Mhz. and i understood it supported 1066Mhz for DDR2, well after reading the manual today it only supports 800mhz and 667mhz for DDR2, and my memory was set at 1066Mhz. i brought it down to 800mhz and i ran a windows diagnostic and memtest86 and now its a problem free computer :) 

woot woot..

thanks all for your help.

Nice, man...yeah I was thinking that, it's why I mentioned the system memory multiplier, after I noticed you had PC8500. Good deal.
