I had Corsair xms6405v4.1, 2X512, and just added Corsair xms6405v5.1, 2X1024, I put the 2G in the main slots and switched the 1G in the other two slots and windows wont boot up. Is it the Version, 4.1 to 5.1 on the new memory thats messing me up?? Anything I can do?? Computer works fine with just the 1G or 2G by itself. Would like to use 3G.

It is NOT recommended to mix and match any modules as it can cause many problems, and may or may not be compatible. My suggestion would be to add only what you currently have in your system to the exact part number, or replace the existing modules with a matched set. Also you may not be able to run four modules at 800MHz, what type of motherboard do you have? You may want to try lowering the memory frequency to 667MHz, however you would probably get the best performance using the 2x 1GB modules at 800MHz.
