Default Ram Probs! (bit of a noob ram-wise)

Hey there newbie here...

Anyways, I have an abit nv7-133R mobo, with 256 ram, 1.4 amd processor & 64 meg geforce 4 gfx card..

I'm having mega ram problems at the moment. I've recently bought a brand new DDR 256 memory stick, installed & it worked fine for a day until i started getting blue screens.
I assumed this wasn't the ram because I had some big virus at the time, so I reformatted.

Few days later, i did some f**king around with the ram which has helped a lot.

The probs still not solved but it's revealed some things. I've made a log of what ive done.

Boot 1 (New ram in first slot)

Blue screen before windows starts saying it can't write to read only memory.

Boot 2 (New ram still in first slot)

Blue screen when i open a program in windows (IRQL LESS THAN OR NOT EQUAL).

Boot 3 (Old ram in first slot)

Everything works fine.

Boot 4 (New ram in first slot)

Installed new drivers for the motherboard, works fine on boot, but re-boots later on without a blue screen.

Boot 5 (New ram in first slot)

Same again, but sooner.

Boot 6 (Old ram in first slot)

Things are working fine, am posting on this forum.

Afterwards, i tried to up the voltage, but I can't do that thanks to my stupid bios menu!

Oh yeah, just to clarify this ram is pc2100.

Thanx in advance...

I see a lot of memory from Fry's electronics do this. Most if it is bad refurbished or bad ram period.
Intel Pentium IV 2.7GHZ with Hyper Thread, 4 Western Digital 120GB HDD, 1 Maxtor 60GB HDD, VisonTek GeForce 4MX 440, SBLive! Value, TDK 440N DVDRW, Memorex 52X CDRW, Lian Li Aluminum Case, Too Many Fanes, and Not enough POWER!!!
