    It very well could be. Have you ram Memtest86+ for a full night while you sleep to be sure your ram settings are ok?

    No not done that, the ram setting are set correct in the bios and so is the voltage. As their is a sticker on the back of the ram with all the settings.

    Will run Memtest86+ tonight

    The sticker is just warrantied voltages, and many things need to be set for 4GB to run stable. Such as MCH Voltage, trfc and ram voltage. Aside from that Auto for some settings may also give you incorrect values for 4GB

    Just tried running Memtest86+, it crashed 10 minutes into running the test, it was a bit of a strange crash as the PC did not reboot. I just heard the graphics card speed up like it dose when you first start the PC, the hard drive light was still flashing away as if the test was still running, but monitor had lost the graphics card signal.

    Here is what you should use for 2x2, sorry about the 4x1 comment above.

    Write to Precharge Delay_________ 8

    Static tRead Value_______________ 10
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________AUTO

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.200V] << May need +0.3 for 2.1
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+0.1V]
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1V]
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.1] << I would for sure set to +0.2, possibly 0.3, but test .2 -.25 first
    CPU Voltage Control_______ changed from normal to 1.25000V <<< Since you changed this, are you sure it is enough? Maybe put back in Auto for now

    After changing settings and loading XP after about 5 minutes, PC rebooted by it's self again and would not post. Had to press reset button to get PC to boot again.

    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.3]
    CPU Voltage Control_______ normal

    Is 1.25000V right for a Q9550?

    Will see how it go's, will the (G)MCH OverVoltage Control be ok set to [+0.3]?

    Yes, MCH will be fine at .3, but you may be able to use .2 or 2.5 but test that later once you are stable

    As for your CPU Voltage, put that in Auto if you are not sure

    PC still not stable and if anything, worse than it was before. Do you think it's worth thinking about RMA the motherboard as it's only a few months old and still under warranty. Also if anything the problem is getting worse.

    It's so bad now the last few messages, I have had to using my wifes laptop to send them.
