Hello W, long time no post
I hope you are all doing good.

But I'm here on business matters!

see what had happened was

I just built a new computer and finally got it running with Vista Ultimate 64 bit, problem is that I kept getting a bluescreen error at startup everytime UNTIL I looked up the problem and found out it has to do with the RAM

Apparently someone else had the same problem, and just like this guy my computer successfully starts up when I only have one card(card? excuse my ignorance) of RAM in (2gb)

When I try to start it up with even just 1 more RAM thing on there it gives me the blue screen again

I switched out one for another just to make sure it wasnt a faulty piece and it actually does start as long as it stays at 2gb of RAM, it wont let me have anymore than that

How do I make it let me use the other 6gb of RAM I have here??

BREAKTHROUGH:

It was completely a problem with Voltage, I didnt know it but the voltage had to be set in the BIOS to specific parameters

4-4-4-12 at 2.2 volts in my case

I wish someone had said, "read the recommended voltage for your ram, it's right on the little sticker you idiot" earlier but w.e I learned something

So if anyone has this problem, now you know...

How was this edited 51 minutes before it was posted? Do the edited time and the posted time deal with time zones differently?

You've had SEVEN YEARS to figure this out.

(All edit times are local to the editor, which is usually the original poster, but sometimes me.)

Simple enough to be the TRUTH!

Oh also now Im getting a completely different blue screen error and Im guessing its because of voltage settings to something else... probably CPU Core voltage settings?

Is there some magical website that can tell me what the perfect voltage settings are for this mobo?

The motherboard will support many CPU core voltage settings and many frontside bus settings and many RAM timings and many RAM voltages. What you need to determine is the correct settings for your processor and your RAM in concert with that motherboard.

Normally, these days, the CPU stuff is set automatically, and I think the RAM stuff usually is, too. Is it possible this board was used for overclocking at some point? Or perhaps you had to turn on manual settings to tweak the settings for that RAM?

The easiest thing to try would be to reset the BIOS to default settings or, if you can't get into the BIOS, use the CMOS reset jumper on the board. By all means, though, before you do anything, download the manual for your motherboard from the manufacturer's website. You may find that you can't mix RAM modules with different timings, for instance, or something like that.

Did you check the alternative solution posted in the comments? I'm pretty sure it was different and it was for the free version.
