Default A7N8X-X and Value Ram Problems

I just built a friend of mine a new computer. However I am having a hell of a time with it since it randomly reboots (from system errors (BSOD)) I am really not sure what the problem is. I am really suprised that I am having this problem since i have 4 (built them myself) computers running XP and have never had any problems like this.


specs
------------------------
400watt Antec power supply
1 dvd rom drive
1 CD Burner Drive
1 Floppy Drive
2 Hard drives (one 6gb and one 40 gb)
Motherboard: Asus A7N8X-X
Processor: AMD Athlon XP 3200 (400fsb)
Video Card: Geforce 4 MX 420 (He cant afford a new one)
OS: Windows XP Home
Memory: 1 Corsair 512mb (400mhz) (VS512MB400C3)

I came here to find that some people are having similar problems with the memory (VS512MB400C3) I went to the thread below, however i am sorry to say that the settings in the bios are correct according to that post.

http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/sh...hlight=A7N8X-X

things I have done to try to remedy the problem

Installed latest nForce Drivers
Installed latest Nvidia Display Drivers
ran chkdsk
defragmented drives
ran antivirus scan
ran memtest 86 (100% Passed)
no bad reports in device manager

none of them have made any progress

One thing i noticed is that sometimes it is recommended to have 2.7v on the memory, however my bios is set for 2.6 volts. should i change it to 2.7v for this memory?

Any Advice?

I am sorry but this MB does not provide all of the options in the bios and may not run stable with these types of modules! I would suggest you use, if you have a 333FSB CPU our CM64SD512-2700 or if you have a 400FSB CPU our CM64SD512-3200!

Well I went ahead and got the CMX512-3200C2 which is supposedly certified to work with this mobo at 400mhz (http://usa.asus.com/prog/spec.asp?m=A7N8X-X&langs=09)

Do you think this would work properly?
