Hello everyone. I have an issue were my computer starts up (first time) and It doesn't post. I push the reset button and it boot up into the bios wanting to go into safe mode complaining about memory/cpu timings. I reset it again and it usually boots up like normal. Sometimes it boots up just fine and other times it boots up normal on the second time.

I have all settings set to stock speed. I recently replaced one of my memory sticks. It was causing my computer not to boot..long continuous beep. It booted fine without the bad stick in. It was replaced and seemed to work fine until recently.
