Default Booting Error

IRQL_NOT LESS_OR_EQUAL.

I know we've all seen that..
BUT.
I just built this system. I have Vista Ultimate on there, and I'm getting the BSOD while Vista is loading. This first started happening after adding more ram onto the setup. I have four sticks of Crucial Ballistix altogether. Each being one gig. I think it was at three gigs that I started getting the problem.

I made ONE successful boot with all four sticks in. I got hyped, installed some drivers for the mobo, network shit, and as I'm rebooting, the same BSOD came back.

In my opinion, I think I have one or two bad sticks of ram. I'd like to know what someone else thinks.

Yup, it's possible that you have a bad stick or two. The best way to find out is to test them using Memtest86+.

Try booting the system with 1 stick of Memory at a time. If you get a BSOD with a stick in there, odds are it is bad. RMA it.

Yeah. I was going to try each stick at a time. I'm at two right now.

Thanks for the replies.
