I just tried putting that stick in the first slot instead of the one that was in there and it is still all messed up so it has to be that stick right?
I just built a new pc
Intel i3 dual
MSI Geforce gts 450
4gb (2gb x2) Super talent memory
500gb Seagate barracuda hdd
Gigabyte p55-usb3 mobo
I was having TONS of problems installing windows xp, vista, 7, AND ubuntu. None of them would install and every one said it had a problem copying files basically. I knew my cd's weren't bad so I figured it was my new 24x liteon sata dvd-rw but I replaced it with an old sony drive with no luck. Someone told me to try it with only 1 stick of memory so I did...and it worked. I tried reinstalling the 2nd stick after I got windows 7 installed and after the OS loaded I was getting tons of errors and if I clicked on pretty much anything it would freeze up and give me tons of errors unless I took that 2nd stick out.
As stated previously, the memory is ddr3 Super Talent ram, 2 sticks of 2gb on my gigabyte p55-usb3 mobo. I ran window's memory diagnostics tool and it said my memory has no problems.
Does this mean it is the mobo? What should I do to figure out where the problem is coming from and what piece of hardware I need to return?
