Well i just figured out the whole RAM issue for those of you who have been following my adventure...
but i have a new issue. My computer keeps randomly freezing up and i usually have to restart it after over 5 minutes of being frozen. I have no idea why this is doing this but my guess is that its a processor issue and a pin is bent/broken/whatever.
This was happening before and after i installed SP2
This was not happening before i installed my drivers
This was happening before i installed all the software
This was happening after i installed all of the junkey stuff like AIM
if anyone knows why this may be happnening, PLEASE tell me
... a beautiful system is going to waste
AMD 4200+ X2
ASUS K8N-SLI PREMIUM (NF4)
WD 200GB 3GB/S 8MB CACHE
CREATIVE AUDIGY 2 ZS GAMER ED.
LEADTEK WINFAST 6800GT
WINDOWS XP HOME (sad i know...) SP2
i dont think anything else would contribute to this problem...

lol, thanks for the help
but i figured it out... for anyone else in my shoes, all i needed to do was disable the other connections. After installing my motherboard drivers is when i had the problems come to think of it... right after i enabled the LAN ports. This was interupting my sessions and everything but a simple disable fixed it on up
