This sounds good...I have put the sticks in the yellow slots so i can just switch them to the black slots...However right now I am trying them with on stick of memory. I didn't have to reinstall the OS right now it is still able to boot up even after it was recovered. So i am running it to see if it crashes again like this. If it works for a couple of days then I will try and put both sticks in the black slots and run it again.
OK I had another issue today...I noticed the computer start to restart on its own again and end up at a black screen. I immediately shut down the computer by holding the power button and turned it back on with the same issue which is it came to a black screen and never went to windows. So I shut the machine off for a few minutes while i changed from one memory stick to another and turned it back on. The computer booted to windows with no errors. I will continue to run the computer with this one stick for a few days to see if i get any more restarts or errors.

Sorry I didn't see this post at first. Well no the old system did not work before. What we did is got a P4 system that most likely had a bad motherboard. So what we did is replaced EVERY PART with exception of the processor and heatsink. Everything was changed. So I don't suspect that we have put damaged hardware from the old machine into the new one unless it is the processor. Now there good be faulty NEW hardware this i am not sure of but can most likely be the cause.
An Update...I ran the computer with one memory stick and it ran for about a day and crashed. I was able to catch it before do much damage. Then I shut it off took that stick of memory out and put the other stick it. The computer is running windows and has been for a little over a day. Today will be the second day. So currently right now it is running longer than it did with the other stick. However this computer has done great for 3 days without problems then all of a sudden starts restarting or freezing. So my plan is to leave it on with this 1 stick and see if it lasts a week with out restarting or freezing. If it does this then we might be that much closer to solving the issue.
Here is an update for everyone...As of right now the computer has been running with no errors, freezes, or random restarts for two days straight now. I have it running on one ram stick. A few days ago I ran the computer with the first memory stick and the computer froze and started restarting. So i swapped out the memory stick with the other one and it is currently running for two days fine. I will continue to run the computer for a few more days to make sure all the problems are solved.
