Windows 7 , random freezing , please help.

Hi,

Ever since i tested out a ram module for my friend , i have had trouble when i put my ram back in .

My windows started freezing and i looked in the bios , i noticed that my timing where off and the clock aswell , so i fixed those but its still happening.

The freeze inculde : random pc freezes when watching youtube {thing complettely freezes , sound keeps playing , sometimes not , sometimes mouse frezzes aswell}

When in games , the thing just completele freezes and i have to reboot , alredy tried to reset bios , didnt work , also alredy re-seated ram , also didnt work


Somehow i think its something with te ram , could be a software problem though , sorry if i missposted this.


specs :


2500k at 4.2ghz {has been stable for ever and ive tried runnign without oc , still freezing}
gtx 560ti with newest 301.24 driver
4 {2x2} gb of corsair vengance 1600 mhz 8/8/8/24

Thank you in advance,
