Okay, I'll post some instructions here.
1. If you don't have a burning program or anything in your system, download BurnAtOnce.
2. Install it, and download this.
3. Burn the image(ISO) onto a blank disc.
4. Make sure your BIOS settings are correct so that it will load CD first over HD.
5. Pop in the disc, restart your system, and the rest should be self explanatory.

Hope this helps, good luck with your problem. :thumb:

Well ... start by testing all the sticks.

DRAM speed, timings, voltage are all factors when testing.
Your setting the speed to auto and the timings by SPD should give you stock settings.

Make sure have the correct settings in the bios and if your not sure, confirm using cpuz while in windows since memtest doesn't always give you the info.
