RAM incompatibility issue? Please help.

Hi,

So to start off I should tell you that the RAM in my machine is not fully compatible with the motherboard I am currently using, this gives me error codes on boot related to a memory issue. However, in order to actually have the machine functioning, I have to wait for the computer to post and then immediately restart. If i do not do this any program I load and explorer its self fails and the computer eventually throws out a BSOD.

Although this is beginning to happen when using the computer at random points, programs will stop responding and windows will freeze, I will also occasionally have a seemingly random blue screen. Is this all down to the RAM issue or could this be another error?

here are my specifications:

AMD phenom II x4 3.2GHz
Nvidia Geforce 550ti 1024MB
4x2GB OCZ gold edition DDR3 1600MHz RAM (the RAM i believe to be incompatible)
4x2GB Kingston hyperX DDR3 1600MHz RAM
Gigabyte Ma77ot-UD3 Mother board

Thanks for your time.

  1. This could all be due to RAM, or it can be due to other problems also. Until you get rid of the ram incompatibility, you won't know.
