Windows 7: Cant figure out if ram or motherboard is bad

Windows 7 Pro. 64/SP-1

If I may.

You state you switched cases. Post #7
As I said before I dont think I had any problems before I switched cases and put in two new hard drives but now I get freezes and had one bsod.
Three things I recommend trying.
1. Remove your motherboard and build your system out side of the case.
then do your ram test.
2. Inspect the motherboard tray stand offs to make sure all of them line up with the holes in the motherboard and that their are no extra stand offs. Some times the stand offs are not correct and will short the motherboard.
3. Inspect the I/O plate when installed in the case if fits properly.
I have seen only once that the I/O plate would short out the motherboard when not installed correctly.

Your Asus motherboar may or may not have this but you can take a look.
Once in bios go to Tools and then DRAM SPD INFORMATION. See if you get okays.
My new Asus board will indicated if their is a problem or OK with each ram slot.

Make sure you keep your motherboard manual handy.
