turn off you computer and PSU then yank your Ram out and let it sit for a bit.More than a few minutes. Then see if that helps.

IF you have recently installed new drivers or software uninstall that as well.

Yeah; open it up and switch the RAMs about. Leave them for a while; and if you can put them in different slots afterwards.

Thats definately a RAM problem.

May be inconpatible. Try running without some of the sticks.

Sounds like something's up with your RAM Sticks. You know anybody who would test them for you?

You tried only running with a single stick?

Search google for Memtest86 and test your RAM
