Mixing different ram sometimes doesn't work, no matter what settings you use. If you didn't have the problem before adding the new ram, you can sell your old ram on craigslist and look for some used 2x2 gb ddr2 kits; I've seen them as low as $40. Use them in dimm slots one and three, which have the same color. They are marked by white id, or check the manual.
There are bios updates, but they don't list any ram issues. Flashing can result in a dead board. Check your bios version on the post screen; fc is the latest approved bios, or there is a beta version fdc available. If you already have bios versions fc or fdc, do not flash. If you do flash, disable any boot block or flash protection settings in the bios, and the windows firewall in the control panel. Then proceed with caution; flash usually proceeds with a small black screen; the old file is erased, the new file is loaded, then checked for accuracy before you are instructed to reboot or it does it automatically. Haven't used gigabyte's flash programs, so don't know how easy they are to use. Last check is for a heat issue. This can be tricky if it's the power supply or video card. Can't really help you for these. I use core temp, but it doesn't cover the video card, just the cpu. Some other programs are available, but may not be accurate for your board. Good luck.
