Problem with this build. RAM?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My friend recently bought this build here and I helped him put it together. After we installed Windows 7 64-bit, the computer would freeze up with 5 minutes of start-up. I then installed 32-bit and the computer worked fine, except only 1.92gb of RAM was available. In the BIOS it show all 8GB are working. What could be the problem here?

I would clear the CMOS and then run a memtest86+.
