The second one was the same thing. Uninstall it and any other alterations you have made to system files.

Sorry to butt in, but CPU-Z shows you using slots 3 & 4 for your memory. Is that what the manual recommends?

You are in good hands with essenbe, just tossing that into the mix.

Most boards don't care, as long as you're using two "paired" ones for Dual-Channel. But you never know...

OK, no problem, check your manual. I think they usually go in slots 2 and 4 or 1 and 3.

essenbe is correct on the Ram slots. The most frequent mistake people make is placing them next to each other instead of staggered. (See pic)

Swapping them is not a bad idea, though Asus recommends using the blue slots for the best chance at compatibility and stability. CPU-Z says you're in Dual-Channel, but they miss one one in a while. Sorry if all of this is irrelevant, but it never hurts to ask.

A couple screen grabs from the manual for your board:

I will check when i get off as to the ram being staggered i have them in every other slot right now i never install directly side by side not sure why it says it like they are side by side and not sure but i thought i had them in the blue slots but i will check then
