I fixed it thanks for helping however. I just took out 2GB of RAM and it works, look at the 3rd post above.

Now arises a new problem - the computer freezes when I use the other 2 GB of RAM. That's a new thread >.<..
Your motherboard is set up for Dual-Channel memory, I wouldn't use 4 sticks of ram. Some systems won't boot 4 sticks of ram and if they do, you don't benefit from it. If you really want the amount of ram you get with the two sticks you should get a matching pair that equals the amount of ram you want.

Test your RAM: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Try swapping sticks in different configurations. Make sure the RAM channels are clean and RAM is seated correctly.

I think what's wrong is they are both a different MHz. And you can't overclock/underclock anything in the motherboard because it's a old hunk of junk HP motherboard that doesn't allow it.

2 sticks = 600 MHz the other two = 800.

MemTest shows they are both fully functional btw.
