    ok i managed to get it past this error but now im getting random stop errors while trying to install windows, done all the normal stuff and only have the basics plugged in.
    Have all the settings set on auto, have tried changing them but as i dont really know what im doing with memory settings i have changed them all back.
    Is there any way i can get the corsiar DDR2 CM2X2048-6400C5 800MHZ 1.8V 5-5-5-18 as it still does not want to take it, or some stable settings for the 1gb stick would be great as i think the errors are based around the memory.
    Cheers

    just thought i would add, whenever i add the corsiar memory since i upgraded my bios it come up with continuous short beep, according to my MB manual it is a Power Error

    Looking at the specs of your Colemaster PSU below, the 12V is split in two rails of 18A so, as I wrote before, it is not capable to output 26A for your video card.
    Today's single rail 12V PSU are the better choice, if you think to upgrade your actual PSU.

    GA-Z97-D3H Windows Pro 8.1
    i5-4690K + Corsair H90
    Sapphire Radeon R7 240
    16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 Corsair Vengeance Pro 2400MHz PC3 19200

    i should be getting a basic card soon so i will be able to tell if the GC is the problem. But like i said it only beeps like that when i use the corsiar ram. Boots fine when i use the cheap ram.
    Just wont let me install windows without random blue screens.

    Trry this for one stick of the corsair, this is with NO Overclock to CPU or ram. This is very loose and for sure should get you going, you will need different settings for using both sticks, and those are for sure not optimal just to get you going. And The above is very true as well >>>

    (G)MCH Frequency Latch...............: [400]
    System Memory Multiplier ..............: 2.40
    Memory Frequency (Mhz) ..............: 800
    DRAM Timing Selectable ................: [Manual]

    Standard Timing Control
    CAS Latency Time........................5
    tRCD .........................................5
    tRP'...........................................5
    tRAS..........................................18

    Advanced Timing Control
    tRRD...........................................4
    tWTR..........................................12
    tWR............................................14
    tRFC...........................................46
    tRTP...........................................5
    Command Rate (CMD) ....................:2

    Driving Strength Profiles
    Driving Strength ............................800-1066

    Channel A & B
    Static tRead Value.........................:10

    MCH/ICH
    MCH Core…………….....1.100V...........: << 1.15

    DRAM
    DRAM Voltage ……....1.800V............: 1.9V


    I see 1.9V default >>>
    Newegg.com - CORSAIR XMS2 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

    So be sure once you get going you test each stick to be sure one or both is not DOA/Dying

    I think the 1.8V could have been your issue as they are 1.9V modules (I would use 2.0 myself until I got stable enough to try lower)

    Ok Thankyou LSD that exactly what i was looking for, just basics setting that would for sure be ok.
    Unfortunatly they still dont work, but i am starting to think now its not memory.
    Let me explane....
    My setup is
    Windows Xp Sp3 (slipstreamed)
    GA-EP45C-DS3R MB F4 Bios - This is the 3rd MB that i have had all with the same faults, So unless im REALLY unlucky we can count that as being ok.
    E8400 3ghz Core2 Processor - Has been sent back and tested as ok, so its not that.
    3 Sata HD - 250gb Sata I - 500gb Sata II - 1tb Sata II - Again same problem on all so and they work on my other pc fine, so im going to presume its not them.
    650w and 470w PSU's - Same problems on both.
    So im basically down to GC or Memory.
    Memory i have the corsiar 2gb (2sticks) ram and the cheap 1gb ram. Both DDRII
    Gc's i have the PNY 9600gt and now a 7300le for testing.
    I have tested the 1gb with memtest 3.4 and it went 13passes with no errors no we can presume thats ok?
    Anyway this is what i get with the combinations.
    9600gt and corsiar ram - Restart loop or cont short beeps (Power error according to my manual), yes it could be the psu but is not looking that way of you looks at my other results.
    7300le and corsiar ram - Same as above but now and then it will throw in a cont long beep (graphic card not seated properly), now im no idiot i know i have seating this card correctly. And have reseated it several time in both PCI-E slots both do not solve. This is what first got me thinking about GC rather than ram. As it also beeps the power error with this combo we can rule out psu as this card has not even got a extra power plug and uses minimal power.
    7300le and 1gb ram - Now this is where it got interesting, as even though this ram worked with the other GC it started showing faults with this GC. All the same faults as before but would boot up randomly the odd time here or there.
    9600gt and 1gb ram - this is the most frustrating combo as it will start every time, will let me into bios and even boot from CD (how i could run memest). BUT i have tried to install windows, and as soon as i have got past the part where you format, load sata driver and then restart, it becomes extremly unstable from this the point it starts working from the HD (really dont think its HD). Will throw random blue screens at me, seen 5 or 6 differant error codes and no pattern to when it crashes.
    I have even tried loading windows onto my old ide drive and then putting it into this machine, It crashes pretty much as soon as the windows logo with the moving line underneath should FINISH and load windows.
    So what do you guys think, I hope you can work out my train of thought with the above as i have convinced myself it is now GC settings and not memory.
    Please let me know what you guys think as insanity is my next option :D

    I still say Ram (Incompatible since you have tried VERY loose settings). I can and do cause BOTH of those error beeps in my system when testing Various ram speeds and timings. For sure!!

    I would suggest you get some Mushkins and stop all this testing and frustrations!
