Awhile back I made to switch from Vista 64 to Win 7 64, for some reason the new installation would bump into errors where Vista 64would not. 2 of my RAM slots would be ok, but when I used at least one of the other two, I'd immediately get errors from Memtest and Windows. My mobo uses 4 sticks of RAM, and the setup has to use corrresponding RAM types in Slots 1 and 3, and likewise with 2 and 4, if using all four. I've done all I know how, resetting the CMOS, removing components and im all out of ideas, help?

Mobo: Abit Fatality F-190HD Socket 775
PC: Core 2 Quad 6600
ATI Radeon HD 6570
Win 7 Ultimate 64
Thermaltake 430W power source

By "corresponding RAM types" you mean RAM sticks of the same density or capacity I assume?
Is that how you've fitted them?

That would be correct. I have 2 modules of Buffalo 2GB DDR2 RAM and 2 modules of Kingston 1 GB DDR2 RAM for a total of 6GBs when my mobo can handle up to 8 I believe. And yes, the way they'd be set up is that 1 and 3 would house the 2GB ram sticks and, the 2 and 4 slot would house the 1GB ram sticks. If only using 2 Ram sticks, then you'd just use slots 1 and 2.
