You need to put the memory voltage if different from 1.8v in the bios.
Run memtest86+ and check for errors.
Are those 4 sticks or 2 sticks of RAM?
Tell us more about that power supply, model and brand.

Hello
Yes I was able to resolve the problem
You must flash the Bios to the newest one from the Gigabyte site
In my case The Bios had set the ram to 1.5 volts and it needed to be 1.9 volts

What kind of ram do you have ?????
What voltage dose it say it needs to run????
Go into the bios and manually set the timings and voltage I think this will sole your problems

Let me know

Good Luck !!!!!!!
