    What is your question? People can't help if you can't accurately state your problem.

    Oh, I thought I was pecise enough. I want to know if something is wrong with my bios setup, I'm preety sure it is since its a default one.
    My curiosity came from ocasional freezing of the computer, no biggie actually, its like random freeze once in 2 weeks. I did some diagnostics and everything seems to be in tact (temperatures are fine, diags didnt find any hardweare malfunctions) so i thought someone might look at my voltage and bios setup, maby problem lays in there.

    I hope it's all clear now :)

    Do you have the latest bios? when you flashed did you load optimized defaults?

    What does your sys read for ram speed? is that accurate?

    Please read more carefully, as for system ram reading, it's 3,5 Gb, as in every windows 32bit os.

    Please provide a link to your ram so someone can advise you of the voltage changes you need to make. You will need MCH voltage increase for 4x1GB and you of course will need to manually set your ram voltage.

    But we cannot offer more help until you link your ram or give us the model #

    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Auto]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [9x]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Disabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [266]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]

    Performance Enhance = [Standard]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [4.00A] = 1066Mhz

    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual]

    CAS Latency Time________________ 5
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________ 5
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______5
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ 15/18

    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________ 3-4
    Rank Write to READ Delay________ 3-6
    Write to Precharge Delay_________ 4-6
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ 52-62
    Read to Precharge Delay__________3-5
    Static tRead Value_______________ 7-10
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ [Auto]

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [Normal] < normally this would be 2.0-2.1V (+0.2-0.3)
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [Normal]
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [Normal]
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [Normal] << +0.2-0.3
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [Normal]

    Than you lsd.
    As I wrote in system specs RAM is GeIL Black Dragon Quad PC8500 4x1 GB, and here are producent spec's.

    I made all the settings like Lsd sugested. I rised voltage for ram as producer said (it says 2,2-2,4V in specs, i made bios settings +0,5V)
    I've installed L2 to test if computer keeps on crushing (it happens mostly while playing). Well, bad news its still crushing but I noticed few more events:
    a) It does not freez like it used to (just sound freeze and monitor in standby mode), everything seems to slow down now,but i manage to kill game process and system stabilize (it happens when RAM voltage is +0,5-0,6)
    b) at RAM on +0,4V before crush i managed to see blue screen, thats new.
    c) ingame graphics started to act weired from time to time it loks like this. Are those the famous arifacts or its just game bug?
