Im not exactly sure but I think but I think it might be a problem with the command rate. Try switching your command rate in the bios from 1t to 2t or 2t to 1t. I cant remeber exactly.

Hmmm... I read something in documentation for winxp x64 that said a 32 bit processor can only handle something like 3 4 or 5 gigs of ram... don't know much but it's an idea.

yeah, looks like its not compatible with my mobo because the ram is registered (stupid me) got carried away buying 8 gigs in total. oh well im going to get the ddr433 3500llpro which is even better!!!!!!!!!!!1

thanks for the help guys, and let me know before any of you decides to buy 4 gigs (there is a lot more to it than the high price)
