but why wouldnt 8 gig work [4 modules] word if i was running it instead of 2 [4 gig]modules thanks for the help

 

Your profile in your dropdown shows 4 x 1GB modules. Update your specifications please if they are different from what is in the dropdown menu.

 

4 modules is twice the electrical load of 2 modules. The system cannot run as fast with 4 modules as it can with 2.

Please refer to your manual. The memory controller aka north bridge aka memory controller hub is the part of the chipset that allows the CPU to communicate with the memory. When running above stock speeds, running more than 2 modules, or both you will typically need to raise this voltage above the stock setting.
