    First off, do yourself a favor and tear the caps lock key from your keyboard and pitch it out the window.

    Your RAM seems to require a higher than default operating voltage (Newegg indicates a voltage of 2.2v - 2.35v, if I have the correct part) and the P35 boards default to 1.8V. This means your RAM may be running either under clocked or does not have enough voltage. Can you check the BIOS settings for that? Check and be sure I am right about the voltage setting - you didn't post the exact part number so don't take my word for it.

    Do you have more than a single HDD connected at the time of install?

    Once you verify your RAM speed and voltage settings, it may be a good idea to test your RAM with Memtest to be sure it is not generating errors.

    Lastly, as frustrating as your situation is try and be patient, go slowly, and we will try and help you find a solution.
    Ha ha haaa....ever get the feeling you've been cheated?

    Hi Vince33 and welcome to these Forums,


    I agree totally with gallowsroad; most installation blue screens with Windows are memory related !

    Run all eXtended tests at least once (1 pass) !
