Windows 7: Windows won't boot with 8gb ever since Radeon 6950 was installed

windows 7 ultimate 64 bit

Oh, also do you know if the DIMM 1 slot isnt working, would it affect the DIMM 3 slot? because I have 3 installed, it even says "installed memory: 6GB" but only showing 4GB as total memory.

You can install a single stick in Slot DDR3_3 without a stick in DDR3_1.

I'm having trouble keeping track of what you are doing. I think you have four 2GB sticks of RAM. Do you have just 3?

"it even says "installed memory: 6GB" but only showing 4GB as total memory" is confusing. What says this? What shows that? The BIOS? Windows?

This is caused by the RAM which in the 6970 is set to a different voltage. I'm using an XFX card, which according to the...
