well both of the sticks of ram work fine, i've tried them once in every slot different ones in the slot one at a time in each slot etc. its only when they are paired up as 4gb then windows pauses at the windows starting screen.
@ Kem; Ran driver sweeper to remove the drivers. Ran the new driver setup. Restarted my computer right as it asked. Windows now sucessfully started (However only with 1 stick of ram). Logging in. Checking device manager. The display adapters show Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX+ with no problems and the device is working properly. With the newest drivers installed.
Sweet! So now I have the good version of the graphics card, now its about the RAM. >.> Both sticks and slots are good.
Concerning the RAM, if you've never put them through a test to determine their validity I would do so now. Use the memtest link above and test one stick at a time. You only need to run the test for 20mins on each stick (longer is more desireable but you can 'get away' with just 20mins)..
I cant do that because now my computer shuts off 2 seconds after turning it on. I even tried taking out the graphics card, nothing. Throwing this computer out asap. Thanks for the (attempted) help guys, sorry it didnt all work out.
Don't give up! I am inclined to agree with Kemical sounds like a jumper or something got knocked loose check everything over again closely. When installing DIMMs it's very easy to bump things when you consider the amount and direction of force required to latch the clips.
Any abnormal beeping before shutdown? If it's shutting down that quickly I would think it's something failing the early stages of POST. Try to re seat your RAM check the connections on your video card and the 4 pin plug for CPU power (if present)
Ok so I fixed the problem, the problem now is that I can only boot with 2 gigs not 4. For some reason I started it up with just 2 gigs and I got Blue Screen. I restarted it (with 2 gigs) and its working,. this was the reported error etc.
