No, my ram is DDR ram but not dual channel ram. I think all of my BIOS settings are at their default. I know I haven't changed any BIOS settings about my ram though.

try running just one ram stick at a time. it could possibly (I doubt it) be your video card too
try running a dianostic tool

I think they say memtest is a good tool on this forum

Doubt its the RAM, but its a possibility I guess. As for your BIOS, make sure you have them up to date...

is there a program that will update ALL of my drivers automatically, or do i have to do them each one by one? If I have to do each one individually, how do I do that?

you got a hardware problem. run a dianostic tool to figure out what it is first, then you can worry about stuff like driver updates

I will run a diagnostic, but what program? I do not think that I already have one. What are some good ones?
