    Alright, I've flashed the BIOS with the F4 version, and then set everything up to what you'd recommended before. Still crashing when Windows starts though, unless I boot in Safemode.

    Flashing was a lot simpler then I'd thought though. Woo!

    Download memtest86 v2.11 burn it as an iso file to a cd and boot to it. This will test that memory. I believe you may have a issue with the memory @1066Mhz. Then test it at 800Mhz. Be sure to change voltage at manufacturers speifications 1.9v@800Mhz and 2.1v@1066Mhz. If it passes at 800Mhz but not at 1066Mhz you are left with a decision to make. You may want to set it to 800Mhz. I personally would settle for the 800Mhz. It's not that much different in performace. You may want to contact the memory manufacturer and RMA it for replacement. They are selling it as 1066Mhz RAM. Then it should work at 1066Mhz. Your motherboard and cpu support 1066Mhz. It's up to you and the memory manufacturer. But this is a hunch please first test it.

    Roger, I'll do that now. I have no problems running the memory at 800 though, as long as I can use the PC.

    Burned it onto CD as an ISO using MagicIso, but it won't run as a bootable item. Any suggestions?

    MagicISO give me trouble too. I use ISO Recorder v2 After you download a iso file and save it all you need to do is right click on the iso file and select "copy image to cd" with ISO Recorder version2. Here is the web page for it. Download the version for your OS.

    Ahh, I see. I've downloaded the the program, but it won't let me run it since I'm stuck in Safemode ( It gives me an error message about not running in safemode. ). A friend is going to burn it when he's home and free, and I'll update then.

    Why are you in safe mode did you set the memory back to 800Mhz? What it would not boot into windows?

    No, I'd mentioned that earlier. I still can not boot up into windows. It crashes unless I boot into safemode. Flashing the BIOS didn't help.

    The memory is set at 800, with 1.9v. The test still fails ( while in windows ) when set to 1066 2.1v

    Oh yeah I see now. Have you performed a clean formatted install of Windows with the bios settings set to optimized defaults?

    No, I haven't reinstalled windows. Unfortunately, that isn' doable right now. I have a windows Cd, but it's home, while having windows Professional installed. It won't let me reinstall over it though, and formatting the whole drive can't be done. ( Too much work-related stuff that I can't lose.)

    Is that looking like my only option now?
