Hi I recently put together a pc for a friend with the following spec

core i3 530
asus p7h55-m motherboard
2gb corsair ddr3 1333mhz ram
asus 240gt gpu
500w strider silverstone psu
640gb WD hdd
sony dvd drive
windows 7

However having assembled the computer there is some stability problems. The one first start up from the windows disk it blue screened and restarted so fast i could read the error message. Having got windows loaded the pc sometimes reboots endlessly on start up and due to being unable to right to the ram. Other times it performs a memory dump. Using the windows start up repair I launched a memory test, this sometimes reports problems with the ram.

I have since phoned scan and will send the ram cpu and mobo back, can anyone think of any other parts to be sent back that could cause these problems?
