    Ok, there's the update. I ran Memtest86+ and it came out very bad i think..lol

    It said it found 33 errors.

    Now, I didnt write any of these down but basically, I need new RAM? lol

    Sound like it maybe, you should test each stick by itself to be sure it isnt just one of them

    What board is this, and in the BIOS do you have any overclocking or Ram settings you can adjust?

    Motherboard:
    Asus p5s800-vm/s

    What exactly Am I looking for in the BIOS sorry?

    As for testing each RAM. Do I simply remove 1, test it with memtest and do the same for the other if needed?

    Yeap, test one in slot one is all, then do the next one by itself. That way you know if one is bad and one is good.

    In your BIOS do you see anything like Ram or DDR voltage or timings or CPU frequences or multipliers you can adjust?

    Thanks, Il test each RAM later on this evening.

    As for the bios, I can't see anything you mentioned..the only voltage there was:
    Power>Hardware Monitor:
    Vcore voltage
    3.3 voltage
    5v voltage
    12v voltage

    Which is irrelevant..?

    Il get back to you with the RAM results.

    Okay, Ive been a little silly..lol.

    It tuns out I only have 1 stick of RAM, therefore it must be that one with the errors.

    So where do i go from here, buy a new stick and see what happens?

    Errors Today:
    Bad pool header
    restarted itself x2 automatically

    Well it could be a Hard drive issue as well as a memory issue. What did the above HDDLife app tell you?

    A clean install could also help, but since you did say your ram is giving you errors best to just get some new ram

    I would buy two so you can have dual channel.

    Sorry but that mainboard is based on the SiS 661FX chipset so no dual channel support is possible.

    HD:
    Health Status: 61%
    Temp: 37
    Performance: 61% Excellent

    Conclusion:
    ALL RIGHT!

    The reliability and performance of your hard drive are completely all right. But do not forget to back up your data at least once a week since nobody is protected against bad luck.

    Hmmm...?
