Hello. I have been having trouble with my computer that i built. It is about half a year old. Here are the specs
Dfi lanparty x38
Ocz crossifer ddr2 800 RAM
e7200
650 watt logisys psu
Vista home premium
radeon x1950xtx

I have already had to install new ram (from crucial ballistix ddr2 800 to the ocz crossfire ram)

Now my computer is randomly restarting whenever (at least it seems ) it needs to use any amount of ram

I have also had a BSOD on startup with this:
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Stop: 0x0000000A (0X000054D4, 0X00000002, 0X00000000, 0X81C5D2AA)

Can you help me identify the problem( i think its bad RAM)

Thanks, will

Your PSU could be the culprit.

Otherwise make sure the ram is running the right voltage and timings.

Run memtest86, to check your ram after you got the voltage and timings set to stock.

Could be a driver problem. Run Memtest to see what happens. Even if it passes you may want to try using a Linux Live CD or DVD and see what happens when it loads the environment into RAM. If you can rule out the RAM then perhaps you have a driver problem.

+1 for the PSU. Logysis PSU are cr@p. Get a PC Power & Cooling, Corsair, OCZ, Antec.
