Go to the mobo manufacturer's website and determine which brands and speeds
of ram have been tested, especially if you are attempting to use pc6400
memory. Also, use the forum on the mobo manufacturer's website for your
mobo and get some advice. This is a common issue relating to pc6400 ram,
use of the fourth dimm slot, and timings. There is also a MS patch but that
is not a panacea for not using supported ram.

You mean gig, not megs right? 8^) I have 8 GB RAM installed
on an Intel DG965WH motherboard and had no trouble at all
installing Vista 64 Ultimate. There is an issue with my Hauppauge
PVR-500 card where the 64-bit drivers aren't working right yet with
the maximum memory a motherboard can take but other than that,
Check your motherboard maker's Website. On some boards,
all four RAM sockets can't be filled. On others (like mine) you
have to use slower than the max RAM speed the motherboard
allows when adding over a certain amount.
