ok my problem is i insatalled my ram backwards, yup..i dont know how i did it but i had it like that for about a month. anyways after all these BSOD and more.. i finally decided to chek if it was a RAM error. so i changed the ram(from slot one) to a different slot. now my ram was installed in slot two backwards. finally i got frustrated and planned on buying a new module but before doing so i decided to try cleaning the pins, but why when the modulewas new?? then thats when i noticed it was backwards. installing the ram correctly i hoped that the BSOD's were fixed. but they were not. so i did MEMTEST 86 on all 3 slots(this time installing propetly). Slot one and two (which i installed backwards had errors at different adresses) slot three which i never used had no errors at all. so now my module is in slot 3 and no more BSOD's. i was wondering what i would need to replace. my ram or my mombo (both are a month old). or do i have to replace both? and will buying the same mombo cause a problem? or would it be how it normally is? would i have to reinstall drivers? or just upgrade the BIOS. cause thats all ive done with this mombo was upgrade the bios. thanks..
