I built my brother a computer and he has been having major problems with it. I have made 3 computers, and I have never had anything as bad as what he is getting. When the computer runs, it runs awesome. The the problem is the thing keeps crashing. I would LOVE some help on solving this problem, as I am having difficulty in knowing what it is.

Specs:
Case: Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Graphics Card: VGA HIS|H577FM1GD HD5770 R
Mother Board: MSI 890GXM-G65 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
PSU: PSU ANTEC|EA750 750W RT (pretty sure link is the same one)
CPU: CPU AMD|ATH II X3 435 AM3 R
Memory Sticks: MEM 2Gx2|GSKILL F3-10666CL9D-4GBRL
Hard Drive: HD 500G|SAMSUNG HD502HJ %
DVD: DVD BRN ASUS | DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS%
OS: Windows 7 Home Edition
(the ones without links I can't find again on NewEgg)


Problems:
Video games keep crashing
Internet browsers (google chrome and IE 8) crash
random things will crash.
Crashing mostly comes in sprints.

Sometimes being boot up, the audio doesn't work. There should be an icon with the description: ati HDMI input/output properties that doesn't appear. The icon looks like his TV.

As the computer is left on, crashes will happen more frequently.

The computer is plugged into the TV with a hi-def cable

Blue Screen of death will show up frequently. Not as frequently as programs crashing, but a couple times a day.

Updates:
Graphics Driver (he says he is not sure if this updated, because the computer kept crashing.)
Motherboard
CPU
all the Windows 7 updates (save for Live essentials and Live essentials 2011. they are just add-ons)


Thanks for any help!

Make sure the Ram is set right in the BIOs VOLTS / TIMMINGS / SPEED /

Update your MOBO Drivers / GPU Drivers / Windows updates / MOBO BIOs

Run a Memtest overnight 10 to 12 hours if it fails RMA your ram

Did you not get a manual with your mobo ? It should tell you all the info you need in that book.

If you check the MSI's QVL that memory isn't listed. Follow the link and check to make sure I just didn't miss it. I also went to G-Skill's web site and tried to use their memory configurator but your board isn't listed. But again, check it for yourself. I would get something from MSI's list.
