Remove all ram sticks but 1, the lead slot. If system boots get and use memtest 86 or schedule the W7 mem diagnostics. Check each stick alone.
Thanks for participating to help me.

I have tried to switch (humour: and ditch) all the slots with different DIMMslots, nothing new comes up. I have Memtest, I tested all my ram 1-by-1 2 days ago (since I got BS) only 1 ram had some errors, I removed it. And has not put it back in.

I personally think its my ram slots, or the mobo itself, or the bios(wich I cant update, ironically)

If Im frustrated? What made you think that?

See if your HD manufacturer has a diagnostic disk, if so check the HD.
If you have been using same system awhile, no hardware changes lately. Then your bios should be OK. Altho updates usually are helpful.
Enter mobo bios and see if they appear to be set right. Ram and CPU.
Are all fans functional?

For bios flash I use a floppy. Save new bios to desktop.
Extract to floppy.
Bios to "floppy boot" only, or enter bios and select bios flash option.
flash, DO NOT INTERRUPT PROCESS for any reason!
- Yes, My fans are running, all of them.
- I have been OCing(not much, as I am a noob) but set it back to normal
- Default settings has been activated in BIOS
- Nothing looks abnormal to me, in the BIOS

If you can. In bios. Using 1 stick only. Put ram settings in manually. MHz, initial timings, voltage. Manufacturers specs.
Same for cpu. MHz and voltage.
Make sure vid card settings are correct.

My 680i's showed this type of issue. Bad mobo.

Thanks, I have sat everything back to normal as it should be (even though not much was edited) And I wont dare to do the ram manually-thingy, I guess I am scared of destroying the motherboard (irony, oh hello there)

Well well, thank you for all helping me. I have ordered a new motherboard (still socket 775, because I am going to the army in january, gonna be there for 1 year, so a brand new mobo is not the cleverest I assumed)

I am norwegian, here is some cool letters for you.

(prononced like "ass" - just not say the S`s (and not an ordinary A))
(like in "sir" - sr)
(like in "oh my god", in the begining "oh", dont breath out )

Thanks, im tired now Good night.

All the ram info could be printed on the side of stick. If so, compare to whats in bios. Its important for ram voltage and timings to be correct for that particular manufacturer.

good night and luck with your countries service.
