    Well, that certainly is odd. Perhaps it's a particular stick of RAM? You could try isolating each of them and running Windows 8.

    I have tried mixing the 3 sticks and it makes no difference, 8 runs fine. Windows 7 runs fine on all 4 I haven't tried putting the sticks in individually yet as I didn't see the point.
    Maybe I should do it.
