Gem,
Your problem is hardware.

Since you said that you had to remove a memory stick to install, then you should start by:
1. going to the gigabyte site and making sure that your memory is correct and compatible.
2. testing your memory with Memtest86+

RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

With all of the problems you have had, you should look into getting a low-end Dell, HP or Toshiba computer.

Sorry, what i meant to say i ran it all night. I am on the third 7th pass for the slots but i don't expect probelms it was very clear that one stick of memory was bad. I don't see the model of RAM on the memory supported list but the speed is supported. Will i need to find a replacement that is on the list?

you can check with Gigabyte,

I suspect that their answer will be the same as mine: all memory sticks should be from the list.

I guess that is what I get for buying sticks that were on sale. I cut the last slot test 4 passes short, no errors, and reinstalled windows. Went flawlessly, updated, drivers, everything, the works. Because they are not on the list does that mean my Mobo damaged the stick or something to that affect? Should I run out and buy an approved pair right now?

Doubtful that sticks have been damaged, but you should get an approved pair so that you can be assured that your problems are not due to erratic ram behavior.
