Exclamation Need Help ! New Custom

OK, got my new pc together. Turned it on, it posts, but shows CMOS Setup Invalid. I go into the CMOS setup and set the boot devices, time, etc. F10 to save and exit, then it restarts and nothing. Computer is running, everything looks ok, but monitor does not come on now and LCD post shows DET DRAM. What am I doing wrong. CMOS showed 4 GB mem.

I figured out, bad stick of mem. Other than that, she is up and running. Vista is working great, but annoying still. Time to update a few things. Thanks for the help Prophet.

First thing to do, turn off the UAC. That crap is the dumbest thing microsoft ever did. Ya im also interested to hear what type of memory you got that is bad. I ordered a 2nd set of ocz mem from newegg and i'm having issues with it. Going to return it for some magistix.

Memory was Corsair 1gb sticks as shown in my sig. Dumb question, but where do you turn of the UAC? Have not had time to look for it yet.
