I mean that it starts with 2Gb, but when the extra 2Gb was added (I've switched them around, so I know the RAM is good) the machine shoots through start up but it won't load Vista. It goes to the option screen, and when loaded in safe mode gets half way through and fails.
p.s. currently using my old PC as I am waiting for the cd to get the vista drivers for my ISP
After looking at your mobo,it does carry a voltage warning:
Due to the High Performance Memory design, motherboards or system configurations may or may not operate smoothly at the JEDEC (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council) standard settings (BIOS Default on the motherboard) such as DDR2 voltage, memory speeds and memory timing. Please confirm and adjust your memory setting in the BIOS accordingly for better system stability.
Look for an updated Bios to the one you currently have.
Only flash the bios if your sure this is what you wish to try !!!
Firstly find out your current bios version. Boot into the bios and look for the version,normally at the top of the screen or run Everesthome click here then click motherboard,then Bios...this should display your current bios.
Post the details back here and we can try to find you an updated bios.
