    All of these, http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/26...video-problems

    As of right now it is booting up and staying, i put the memory stick in the last slot and it worked.

    Was just about to suggest that :P fixed my brother-in-laws custom build by shuffling memory. Once he set the timings and voltage right he could use all the slots again.
