Default PROBLEM WITH BLUE SCREENS - Radeon9800, A7v8x-x, K-Byte 2 x 512pc2700 ram sticks

So, I got my new processor the other day. An Athlon XP 3000+. I was
running PC2100 ddr ram, and my new processor was running at 333mhz, so
I was having a few problems with these two running at different
speeds. So I went and got some new ram from Best Buy. K-Byte was the
brand ram I bought, and I bought 1gig of it (2 512 sticks). The new
ram was PC2700 which means both my processor and my ram are both
running at 333mhz. My motherboard is an Asus A7v8x-x. Ever since I
put in the new RAM I have been getting random blue screens. One said
it was a error associated with WIN32K.sys and then I just got one
saying that it was associated with ATI2CQAG.dll. Other times, all I
get is a error that says STOP: 0x0000008E. I can NOT figure out what
the problem is. I have tried running just one stick of 512 ram, and
still got blue screen. Then I switched to a different stick, and got
a blue screen. I even tried different slots for the ram, thinking
maybe a slot was bad or something. Nothing seems to fix it. I am
pretty sure it isn't my Processor, because I never got blue screens
before when i was running the new processor with the old PC2100 ram.
I just got lock ups etc i'm assuming from the two speeds being
different.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. This is driving me crazy.

CPU: Athlon XP 3000+
RAM: 1 gig PC 2700 DDR - K-Byte (2 sticks of 512)
VIDEO: Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb
MOBO: Asus a7v8x-x


one last thing. Whenever I get a blue screen, Bittorrent seems to be
running. This may or may not have a factor in this problem.

You need to find ALL the specifications of your RAM and verify them in the
BIOS of your Motherboard. It's possible your mainboard has chosen wrong
voltage and/or wrong timings for your RAM. IF SO, then manually setting
these options MIGHT help. For example, some RAM sticks might require 2.6V
or 2.7V. If your motherboard defaults to 2.5V, there's your problem. Or if
the motherboard thinks your RAM is CAS2, but it's actually CAS3, there's
your problem. But it could be a hardware problem, also. That is, if your
motherboard chose wrong settings for your RAM, it could just be that your
particular off-brand of RAM is not compatible with your motherboard. In
that case, you'd be treating a symptom (and not the problem) by setting up
your motherboard manually to support your RAM. -Dave
