Yeah, I know about the ram slots :D I got the manual right next to me as well.

I don't know which settings in the BIOS I should look for, I know nothing about what each function in the bios does, except for the obvious ones.

I have just read the memory settings on that motherboard.
I have to be honest and say I have never seen so many possible variables.
To eliminate any possibility, unless you can of course already dismiss this, that the settings were manually adjusted on the intelligent tweaker facility, and have somehow now become incorrectly changed

I would as a last try, enter setup and load optimized faults.

That said, I am not qualified to reset any special setings that are required by the specialities of your system.

Have you checked the manual carefully, as in addition to the memory voltage leds there are all manner of leds on that board inidicating either OK or fault conditions

Would you say running the computer like it is at the moment, would harm it?

I got a big project coming up so I need my computer available.

Unless you are seeing something that we have not seen in the diagnostics and the logs then I see no reason you can't use it. Just make sure if you are saving work you should back it up to a flash drive or another hd just in case.

Alright

I'll let you guys know if I find a way to fix it, but I'll probably end up with sending the board back to gigabyte.

Thanks for the help!
