    Have you changed anything in the bios? What you could do for starters, although it's most likely something else, is just load up the bios optimised defaults, save and reboot.
    GA-P35C-DS3R Rev2.0 F11 bios, E8200 (@3.0Ghz), OCZ DDR3 PC3-10666 Reaper 4GB (@1200Mhz), Xonar D1, 8800GTS 512, Corsair HX520 (Single 12volt line, Max 40A), WDC 3200aaks/5000aaks in AHCI mode, Vista 64 Premium.

    I would recommend you start with this for stock >>>>

    4x1 @ 1066 needs some tweaking, I dont think it is a hardware issue either. Also you could just install with one or two sticks just go get windows installed then work on your settings >>>>


    I do also suggest you overclock to at least 402 FSB, so you can use the 400 MCH latch and 2.66 Multi for your ram as it will be much more stable

    These timings for the ram are very loose and you should be able to boot fine with them unless the 333 MCH latch is a issue which it very well may be for 1066 ram. I have not played with it much yet

    I tried the "optimised defaults" but it just rebooted as usual.
    I set the bios according to Lsdmeasaps values and now it boots and I have installed some drivers, so far so good. I will write back later if anything occurs or if it seems to work.
    In any case thanks Lsdmeasap.

    Well optimised defaults will not work for 4x1, you need to set them, and change your voltages and likely trfc and static tread and set your ram voltage before you save and apply

    Ahh, I see you got it. Sorry I type as I read too often.

    Ya, post back if you need more help or have any more issues
