Ok, so, just built my new computer. And it's awsome! Crysis has never run so fast in my life!... But theres a problem.

Everytime, or ever 2nd time i turn on my computer, my system HAS to do a chkdisk. Once it's done, i put in my password. After words, I wait, and my system goes blue screen. This happens about 3 times, before my computer, just works. Nothings wrong, it works perfectly fine, and everything.

I was hoping, maybe it's faulty memory? I don't know. I need help! It's really starting to scare me...

P.S. this is my first build.

Yes they are new. i just troubleshooted by taking out one of my ram sticks. And, it didn't blue screen on boot, and there hasnt been a random reboot so far.

I would like to let you know i was running the ram in Double channel. I want to try to run both ram sticks, but is there a way I can run them without them being in dual channel? Like, spacing the DIMM slots by 1?

sound alike a bad ram stick then.

Run Memtest overnight 8 passes minimum, should take around 12 hrs.
See how many errors pop up with both sticks in.

^ +1 sounds like a bad stick...Just check it once again and send it for RMA if the problem persists...
