    I meant does memset pass or fail?
    From what I read, here and other places, to qickly find error, first run test 2 for 10-15 minutes (press keys, c 1 3 2 enter 0), if it pass run test 5 for an hour, then if it pass, run all the tests overnight.

    I'm far from being an expert, but memory is what I usually test first.
    Your problem may be hardware, bios, bios settings or software (druvers etc.) all you can to is to try and eliminate the various possibilities.

    it fails because I remember doing it before... I just tried to play counter-strike:source and I didn't last 10 mins.

    I mean I'm not bashing my other hardware but it should be the RAM because if u put ONE stick nothing happens :( just runs slow

    Everything is updated on my computer too.

    I would suggest runing memtest anyway.
    If it fail you can try and use DDR2-800 (memory multiplier 3) and see if that changes anything. There's not much differench between DDr2-800 and DDR2-1066 with 266 bus frequency, and you would sure run better with 2GB DDR2-800 than 1GB DDR2-1066.
    But before you do please read this post, put uour HW details in your signature including bios ver. as explained there, and fill the bios settings template with your settings, so when the experts come they will have all the details needed to assist you :-)

    Hmmm seems there isn't. Guess you'd have to do it the old fasion way and select it with the mouse then right-click and copy.

    To me your settings and reading look OK so I have nothing else to suggest other than to try the yellow slots and/or set your memory to run as DDR2-800.
    Code:
    DRAM Performance Control
    Performance Enhance ------------------- : [Standard] 
    Extreme Memory Profile --- (X.M.P.) --- : [Disable] 
    (G)MCH Frequency Latch ---------------- : [Auto]
    System Memory Multiplier -------------- : [3.0A]
    Memory Frequency (Mhz) ---------------- : 800
    and maybe also
    Code:
    DRAM
    DRAM Voltage ------------ 1.800V ------- : 1.8 or 1.9
