Alright. Set the DRAM:PCI ratio to 5:1, and the RAM speed to 166mhz (if the option is available) and the PCI speed to 33mhz (if the option is available) and leave the rest of the settings on default. See if the new RAM works now.

A repair install won't help if this is a hardware problem. Do you get the same BSOD when trying to start Windows in normal mode?

Can you verify the machine still boots up okay with the old RAM? Can you verify the BIOS settings with the new RAM (CPU and RAM speeds and voltages)?

i think, i fixed my issue myself. i forgot my BIOS was not up to date and i read what the ERROR was and it said some thing about the BIOS being up to date.. so i updated and im running in normal now and my voltage went up to 1.15 instead of 1.8

Great news. So are you all set now with everything working as it should? Please stop by again if anything starts acting up.
