It does seem that your RAM is faulty. New RAM is your best option at this point. I'd recommend one of these.

HELLO ALL, sorry about all that (lol) im back from me hols and a little less stressed! :) yes i indeed have fried one of my ram chips --- i was not wearing my esd bracelet at the time so :) yeh im retarded so is that the problem fixed then? is the source bad ram? or am I in for another hard time!

If the problem is bad ram, could you please tell me what ram my setup can take(i've got 50 gbp and ive never seen ram more expensive than that!.)

To all thanks for the help

ps- I cleared the bios in a hissy fit, do i have to setup anythink again?, i will the overclocking step from stettybet again :) (Hopefully this time i wont blow somethink up!)

pss- cheers member for life :)
