Are you sure your MOBO supports that much RAM?

Yes, it supports 4 gig but ! slot is bad and I could only put in 3 gig. My cpu shuts down about every other day and thenI get the same msg.

Are you sure you installed compatible RAM?

How do you know one slot is bad? If a module was installed wrong and damaged a slot it may have damaged the memory controller.

Give some system specs and more details about the bad slot.

Also, what RAM was installed and what you added.

Yes it is the correct ram, the slot that will not take will not boot. We switched modules to be sure the module wasn't bad.
I installed 184Pddr dimm (128mx84) (64mx8 ddr400 3-3-3)
The strange thing is that the installed ram had only 3 modules and the bad slot was empty. Makes me think it was bad from the get go.
