I have 4 answers for you...

1. your Ram is evil

2. Your Motherboard is a piece of crap.

3. You have no idea what your doing.

3. You have no idea what your doing.

4. 2 of the 3

1. donn't think its the ram cause its the third stick i try

2. my mobo is a piece of crap.

3. i have a pretty good idea what im doing, i have built pc from scratch, i just know that there are alot of other people that know more and that may have come upon this error.

4. its probably #2

haven't taken it the wrong way!!!

If the case is that your mobo is crap... than there is certain things you can do. Flashing your bios is one. However its a 500 to 1 shot. Mobos are manufactured for a certain type of ram. Altering the bios "might" cure the problem; chances are it wont. I suggest you acquire ram that has the same specs as your current ram.
