    The first thing to so is to turn off "Automatic Restarts" and then check your memory using Memtest86

    go to settings, control panel, system, in system properties window click the advanced tab, click settings in the "start up and recovery area", uncheck the box that says "automaticly restart on system error".

    what this does is instead of your PC rebooting, it will show a bsod which you then can record the information the blue screen shows.

    Sounds like a RAM compatibility issue. Run Memtest using only 1 RAM module at a time

    You're welcome redpowerranger,
    we always recommend not to mix RAM types in a single system... Happy Computing!

    ah right thats why then haha.
    i think the pro ram is incapable to an extent because that is where it found the fauls...i habe put the balistix ram in and it seems to be working fine .
    thanks again.
    and thanks to google :)
