I have also installed new drivers for my graphic card but it doesnt help as well. Do you have any suggestions what might be causing this problem?

guljo, you might have defective memory. That is anoter common cause for the installation problem. Have you always tried with the same 2Gstick or they both work when alone? You should run a memory test. Try memtest (Memtest86.com - Memory Diagnostic). You will burn it to a CD and boot with it. I would advise to run on the sticks separately. You should run it for several cycles, since sometimes problems do not show on the first pass.

I have found the solution to this problem:

Boot up in safe mode with all your memory installed,
enter msconfig into start menu search and open, <boot> tab, <advanced options>
then edit the # of processors (1 per core) and maximum memory to what is installed (this is in MB)

The solution was posted by Jup HERE.

Thanks everyone for help, especially wallyinnc.

My pleasure.

Well I still have a minor problem, my ram is showing as 4,00GB (3,44 GB usable). If I find the solution for this as well I will post it here.

Thanks again for your help.

If you have the 32bit version installed, that is normal... 32bit can only address 3.44Gb of ram... You will need to install the 64bit version in order to use more..

Interesting. Guljo should have 5G and Win7 x64. But it is showing as 4G show in a 32 bit version.
Guljo, what does your BIOS say about your memory? I don't think your graphics card shares RAM with the system, does it?

yeah guljo with all of this experimenting did you switch to the 32-bit version?

Your original BSOD shows you definitely had 64-bit but now it seems you changed it.

Also, tell us more about your RAM. Give us some specs on it, such as voltages and timings. When mixing different brands/types of RAM you'll likely need to go into the BIOS and configure it to the least common denominator. That is, voltages and timings that each brand can perform stable under.

Even if you configure the RAM correctly, it won't always work. Maybe the RAM is just incompatible with each other. Or maybe the RAM is incompatible with the motherboard. It happens.
