    By test it you mean run the memtest for each stick of ram or another test?

    Run a test on each stick of ram. This will let you know if both are bad or just one.

    Tested the ram, found one of the ram to have errors so I replaced it and everything is fine now! I was able to re-downloaded my video card drivers with no problem. I no longer received the error I had been. As of now, I am not having any problems with my graphics hardware. So it seems all is great! If anything comes up I'll notify this thread but I feel much more confident knowing I have steps I can go through to test my hardware and zero in on the problem. Thanks a ton for all the help guys!

    :) I'm glad you figured out the issue. Had you not resolved the issue to one DIMM, I would have had you go into your BIOS and "Load Fail Safe Defaults," and then I would have had you double check the memory timings & voltage for the speed the motherboard set the memory at, and then had you retest the memory, but there is no need to do that now :).
