While running, my computer experienced blue screen. Since then it wouldn't boot up without blue screen.

Safe mode had blue screen.
Reinstall cd could not fix the problem.

Took almost every piece of hardware out, problem still occurred.

Took out one of the 2 memory sticks and my computer works again. I don't know if its the motherboard or memory causing the blue screen.... Bios is recognizing the memory but windows will not load with both of them in.

Yes my ram are. Compatible....
Yes they are compatible with my motherboard.... This computer is not newly built.
So why would both ram sticks be the cause of blue screen?

Sometimes memory goes bad. Get a copy of Memtes86+ and try it with one stick at a time. Also, check your Mobo manual to make sure that you are using the correct slots for dual channel mode.

okay, i've checked both ram sticks and they both are okay. The motherboard however might be the problem....

I receive 4 short beeps (this is new) with both sticks in, and windows does not boot but restarts. Only one ram slot is working. I found this, just want to make sure....

"If you're able to get memory to work in one slot but not another slot. You're motherboard is defective you can either workaround the issue by running the memory in a different slot or replace the motherboard."

This happened while trying to burn a dvd to my computer. You think this was the cause, or my Asus motherboard is just cheap? This is the second time this has happened and I had to return it.....

Can you post your system specs? Include manufacturer and model of the Mobo, CPU, RAM, GPU, Hard disk, and any other devices that are plugged into the mobo.

Based on your tests it's likely that the mobo is the problem but more info would be helpful.

ASROCK b75M motherboard
i5 2400 cpu
2 GB x 2 gskill F3-10666CL9D-4GBNS ram
GPU is not connected for test purposes
Seagate Barracuda ST3500413AS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
LITE-ON CD/DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model iHAS124-04

I truly believe that the ram is the cause, but motherboard symptoms are what being displayed (one slot not working). i'm confused. I have another mobo that experienced similar symptoms with both rams in (black screen-restart). Prior to my blue screen, I was burning a movie to my computer (which im on now) and I remember the computer usage was rather high. If im not mistaken, burning movies uses lots of ram....
