Windows 7: Bizzarre Screen "Artifacts", unable to boot

I had a similar problem yesterday, I had a memory dump that would restart my computer but my computer would not start and screen artifacts. I did put the windows 7 cd in and did what repairs test were possible. I tried to reinstall Win7, disk would not let me, said I had a hardware problem.
I took out the video card and used integrated video, no screen artifacts but had the memory dump problem. I took one of 2 stick of ram out and it worked great.
I bought a new video card, works great. I tried putting the other stick of memory in and got the screen dump.
Suggest just do the simple stuff, forget the crazy tests, I wasted a lot of time doing crazy test stuff. I guess I got a bad spike so I bought (2) 3600 joule surge suppressors.
