Read your MOBO book ( set your bios up )

Set your ram timmings and voltage

Run a memetest

I would start with this, also do you flash your mobo bios ? < sometimes this helps with alot of stability issues

So I read the online manual and I went into the bios to check my settings and it froze. I restarted the pc and it will load till the starting windows screen show up and it freezes. I'm running windows 7 ultimate64bit by the way. I can go into the bios every so often and go into the memory settings. I change the first 4 settings per my timings and when I save and exit I get an error message and the pc locks up and freezes. This *** is driving me nuts. Any more advise anyone

Try to just use one stick of ram at a time, if you get to bios set your ram timmings and VOLTS

RUN a memtest with one stick at a time you you gat errors and the sticks return them

Ok i set the voltage and the timing. I only have one stick intalled and I start the pc. It works for a while and as I'm trying to dl IMF burn it freezes. Restart the pc and it freezes at the starting windows screen. Switch out the stick fo r the other one, freezes in the same spot. Any more advise please. Thanx

I started running memcheck and it froze 15 min in. No errors. The highest I've seen the temps were 43c. Any other ideas?
