Default Memory Help!

I just made my new computer with all good hardware. my problem is that one of my memory sticks might be bad..it surprises me because i got Corsair XMS Extreme Memory Speed Series that stuff is usually good..i got a DFI "LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D so really didnt think ne problems should occur.i dont know if it is because i dont have it in dual channel or not.i said to put it into the 2 & 4 slots..when i did i was installing xp professional first it was verfying dmi data pool...changed the boot order...then it worked then before install the windows it had the blue screen of death...and was IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL idk something like that took out the memory and it when through..i thionk i have all the drivers updated..so im pretty much stuck..i put the memory in again and would restart right after booting windows. sorry for being so long

Several things here :

1. If you want to eliminate the memory as the problem, download memtest86 or similar & check the RAM http://www.memtest86.com/

2. Go into device manager & check for any IRQ conflicts or other problems. Pay particular attention to the USB devices

3. If you get the IRQ_NOT_LESS.... error again, can you tell us the rest of the info i.e. You will see a line that reads STOP 0x0000.....
Can you tell us everything on that line following the word STOP.

Also, note if there is a device driver or system file listed under it (such USBPORT.SYS..... for example)
