RAM And Display problems

So yesterday I just went onto my computer like I normally do. It shut off 3 seconds after I turned it on, it rebooted and then shut off and then rebooted and then it worked. A few hours later, my computer BSODed, and it did the same thing (reboot and shut off twice). One of my BSODs apparently was a RAM problem, so I swapped out the two sticks I have and then it does the same thing, shut off and reboot. Then I installed both sticks of RAM, and it didnt shut off on first boot, but there was no screen display.
Any help?

Specs -

i7 960 @ 3.2 GHz (Stock)
GTX 460 SE v2
Xigmatek Darknight CPU Cooler
Asus Sabertooth x58 motherboard
Corsair Vengeance RAM
1 TB Seagate
1600x900 HP S2031 Monitor


All help is appreciated, thanks!

Try different RAM slots. Also how many sticks are you using(the answer should be 3)

I have 4 installed, but its been working before like that.

I advise you use 3 matching (3x2GB<or 4GB> DDR3-Same speed/latency) and start interchanging RAM slots. It could be its a slot issue, not a stick issue.

Also start trying one at a time in each slot. You need to narrow down the real issue.

could also be a good thing to do a memtest with the memory stick one at the time

I got all 4 sticks in, and it works fun but it still shuts down twice on startup.

Then it doesn't "work fine"

So either start narrowing down if it's a socket or stick issue, or enjoy your BSOD cycling restart POS.

Also just so you know, with 4 sticks in you actually have a reduced performance compared to only 3 sticks.
