I Ran at least 8 or more tests on every test i ran..
They are now located in slot XMM1 and XMM3, wich I have understood it to be the two paired slotes i have to use..

Yes. I'm no longer using the original Ram chip (damn you HP).
The ram installed now is :
502745 Corsair Value S. DDR3 1333MHz 4GB CL9
Kit w/2x 2GB, Unbuffered, CL9-9-9-24, 240pin, 1.5V, for Intel and AMD
DDR3

(2 chips of 2GB each)

Thanks for the update .
You're using a compatible RAM specification-wise (at least on paper).
Now that the modules are operating in the same channel are you still getting errors?

Yes... the memtest screenshot i posted is from running both chips in same channel..

Good to know that I actually didn't F up by ordering wrong chips.. hehe..

I've built many computers over the years.. but I've not rebuilt OEM pc's before.. so that being a potential problem never crossed my mind..

This just makes me hate HP even more.. LOL

I've kinda given up..
I've now reinstalled the original chip, and will run a mem test over night..
If that passes, I'm sending the new chips back to the vendor...
There's only so much time i want to spend on this machine..

Luckily for me, I'm not the one paying for a new computer if i decide to pull the plug, hehe..
Going to be interesting to see what the memtest says in the morning..

And what the vendor says if i decide to return the chips.

Thanks for all your help so far, anyways. Much appreciated!

Hi .
Yes it will be interesting what both the vendor and the current (ongoing?) memtest86+ run will
have in store for us.
I'm happy I could help, keep updating for future reference .

The latest test with the original chip passed AOK..
Doing one more shot with the new chips in a different machine..
Suddenly found out that the neighbouring office had a compatible mobo, LOL.

I'm not sure what you meant by balistic, whether it being good or bad .
Now with the original modules, how are things going?

So I wanted to undo the RAID, but the RAID is not my boot disk, so I figure...
