I cannot install 4gb of ram on my mobo ... reason unknow so far :|
i prolly tryed everything possible... loosing the timings, increasing volts, installing vista with 3gb and then putting anoather 1gb in, what else ?does anyone had the same problems im going through?what is ur opinion ?

Is it vista thats not reporting 4gig when u have all 4 sticks in place? how much RAM does it state when ur booting up (POST) is in your system?

My guess is it's the memory causing the problem you may have to try a different manufacturer. Also when you install Vista 64 do it with only 2g of memory and make sure all the updates for Vista are on your machine then add the other two gig.

I have the P5N32-E plus board and added 4gb (2x2) adata RAM and had all sorts of memory crashes and lockups until I changed the following.

1. Change FSB to unlinked
2. Change LTD Frequency from 4x to 5x

I left all the other settings alone.

ltd freq is at 5x from factory settings... i tryed with 4x and same problem ...
i bought mushkin 2x2gb and i finally have a stable system
