    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.

    The tests during the night on the other machine went balistic..
    25 passes and 8-9 error messages..

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