Did you check to see what your MOBO can handle?

Some googling shows this might be the motherboard in your computer.

What type of RAM did you install 4x1gig?

Run memtest86...one or more of your RAM sticks is probably defective. And make sure to manually configure the memory settings in the BIOS.

Are all four memory sticks identical? That is, are they all the same model from the same manufacturer, with the same specs? If not, the timing and/or voltage requirements might be conflicting and you'd see failures when the sticks are combined where no failures occur when the sticks are used individually.

Just checked them, they are all the same size and model but 3 of them say dimm on them and 1 says udimm on it so maybe that is the problem.

Did you go to Crucial's website as I recommended?

If you upgraded the processor and RAM at the same time I suggest you restore the RAM to the known working configuration to verify the processor upgrade is OK first. Then deal with the RAM.

Yes, do what O'hill said. good advice.

After verifying the processor upgrade is ok, try installing the three identical sticks and leaving out the one udimm. Post back with results.
