No, you're not am idiot. If that is the worse mistake you make working on computers, you'll be an expert, like writhziden.

I'd just run the smart test and the short drive self test. If there are no problems noted, let it go. The other tests can take a long time, and we have no real indication there is anything wrong with them. Same for the seagate test.

Does CPU-Z see it as Dual-Channel now? I know you caught the glitch, but it's always good to double check these things.

For what it's worth, on my last AMD motherboard (MSI) they actually had it wrong in the manual. When I booted it up and saw "Single Channel" during the POST routine I knew something was up.

You're getting some good advice, so pardon the interruption.

Yeah. I had registered the board for warranty purposes and about a month after I bought it I got an email telling me to disregard the manual. Fortunately I had already figured it out.

LOL well that's good, and i Now have my Memory in Dual Channel

But there's a Weird thing when i was looking at the Ram stick it self when i switch them to the right spots they Say 800MHz on the Stick them Self (on both Sticks 2 BTW) and then They Say 5-5-5-18 and 18.V So all that is Right but the 800MHz isn't I don't think mine are running at that?

DDR stands for Double Data Rate. Take that 400MHz which CPU-Z is showing you and double it - then you've got your 800MHz just fine.

The lock screen sees random freezes and a hard reset is required.
Hello, at random times the lock-screen freezes and a hard reset is needed. Keyboard light still toggle yet the SysReq + REISUB key combination does not do anything. Where is some syslog for checking why the kernel dumped and find potential solutions? This is windows 8.1, is this a known bug?

ndis.sys BSOD (timing seems random)
I get the BSOD every couple of weeks. Most of the research I've done indicated that it was probably an out of date driver, but I've updated everything I could (at least everything that I'm aware of). I can't pinpoint any specific activity that causes it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
