    I guess this is a pretty simple question here.

    I have an ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo, and I just bought 8gb of G.SKILL RAM that was guaranteed to work with the mother board. When I installed the memory the computer gave me a BSOD AFTER it posted. The BIOS shows 8gb of available memory. I also changed the timing and frequency to the ones written on the side of the module.

    The BSOD always pops up right as the windows logo is coming together (windows 7) with "Stop 0x000000A5 the ACPI BIOS in the system is not fully compliant with the ACPI specification"

    Now I have two 1 gb sticks of crucial ram that I was using, those still work fine, not a problem.

    Do you guys think it's a problem with my memory or with the configuration of the mobo? How can I check if it's a memory problem?
