Try running it through Memtest86+ see if you get at least one full pass with no errors.

I tried the memory tester that comes with windows and it failed, does this count?
Am I having memory problems?

I'm not sure what memory tester that is... Try downloading memtest from here
Do you have a case speaker? If so, what beeps are you getting when you start your computer?

I assume you haven't changed any of the settings or voltages?

Ill try that tester, and I only get one short beep when it turns on. Thanks!

Also, after running memtest+ try running only one stick at a time and seeing if you still experience problems.

Ok, now I'm testing the stick one by one.

Only one stick didnt pass the test. Now I know whats going on, but is there any way to fix it?

You're going to need to replace that stick. If you can return them to where you bought them (assuming they are under warranty still).
