RAM ERROR: STOP 0x0000000A - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

  1. Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo e6700
    Motherboard: ASUS Commando
    Video Card: ATI x1900 XTX
    RAM: 2 1GB sticks of OCZ PC6400 for a total of 2GBs of physical memory
    Hard Drives: 2 500GB Maxtor Sata2
    OS: Vista Ultimate

    Okay the computer is sweet, but I really wanted to be able to game and decode video at the same time, and sometimes listen to music. So I decided to add more RAM. I got two sticks of 1 GB of the same kind of RAM. When I boot up the RAM seems like it’s there. But when I go into Task Manager, there’s only 3 GB of memory showing!

    So then I thought, “I’ll just reinstall Vista because maybe it’s my OS.” So I get the DVD you gave me and I start the installation, and it stops and I get an error that is something like this:

    STOP 0x0000000A - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    Now I can’t even reinstall Vista! I think there’s something wrong with my motherboard!

    I have attached some screen shots as well

    Is this compatible with your motherboard?

    Check the memory timings in the bios settings. Set them to the boards default values
