    Originally, my desktop computer had 2GB PC2-4200 DDR2 RAM. I attempted to add an extra pair of 1GB RAM sticks. Although 4GB of RAM would show up in my system properties, it was unsuccessful because the audio would come out as loud blips of static. Also, my resolution would change and my computer seemed to not recognized my video card. I couldn't even start games. So I figured the RAM was faulty and i purchased another pair of 1GB RAM sticks. Same problem. However, no matter what pair of sticks were in the computer, it would always work with just ONE pair of sticks. So I figured that my computer was only acting up if there were four sticks of RAM in it. This led me to buy a pair of 2GB sticks. Still the same problem with only two 2GB sticks. I am now stuck with these extra RAM sticks and only 2GB will work in my computer. I have attempted to update my audio and video drivers, as well as retry the sticks in all possible positions and combinations. Here is my audio and video info:
    NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT 512MB memory latest drivers
    Realtek High Definition Audio latest drivers
