I ran the memtest86+, it found no errors and passed the test.

Did you test each stick individually.

 

How many passes of Memtest did you run, rev_olie recommends eight individually on each stick of RAM but six or seven on each stick is normally enough to root out any bad RAM.

No I didn't test them individually.  I'll do it here soon as it will take some time to do so.  I'll get back to you when it's be completed.  Thanks for the help.

I've been busy lately and the computer crashed yesterday about five times so I took the time to run the memtest.  First stick during test, the screen went black and had to restart.  The second stick had 408k plus errors so I figure both of the first two sticks are bad as the other two passed the test.  Did not reinstall the two bad sticks but the good ones.  Spent four hours last night trying to get the computer to boot up properly and hold without it not functioning at all.  Ran into Disk Boot Failure insert system disk press enter/or at startup Disk Boot Failure enter bios and select default settings at startup.

No worries, we understand that you have other things to attend to.

 

First stick during test, the screen went black and had to restart.  The second stick had 408k plus errors so I figure both of the first two sticks are bad as the other two passed the test.

 

 

Can I ask which memory slot you were using when testing the RAM. 

 

Ran into Disk Boot Failure insert system disk press enter/or at startup Disk Boot Failure enter bios and select default settings at startup. 

 

 

Obvious I know but have to ask, have you made sure that both the HDDs power lead and SATA cable are securely connected.

 

What two memory slots do you presently have the RAM in.

 

Have you been into the BIOS and selected the MBs "failsafe default values".

 

Please note that the MBs "optimal settings" option should not be selected as it is a form of overclocking that can and often does cause system instability.

It has four memory slots but I used the slot next to the CPU.  The two sticks I'm using are the two farthest away from the CPU.  Seems to be running ok right now but is a lot slower with losing 4 gig of memory.  I had been in Bios and had selected default values when trying to over come disk boot failure.
