Blackout On 4GB Memory Gaming

This is partially related to
http://www.vistax64.com/general-disc...gb-memory.html

I had been using the last beta BIOS (1021.006) for my P4P800, so I
decided to try the last non-beta (1019). With 1019, 3584MB of memory is
detected, up from 3327MB on 1021.006. There's a major problem usability
problem with 1019 however. The screen will go black from time to time
when in games while sounds can still be heard. When the game is actually
seen, it seems to be running at normal performance (unlike the problem I
had in
http://www.vistax64.com/general-disc...gb-memory.html
). So... any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you over-clocking? Do you have the latest drivers for your
graphics card?

Yes and yes. My CPU is overclocked from 3.0 to 3.75 (250FSB), but I'm
using a 3:2 ratio (250FSB/3:2-DDR400) on the memory so it isn't.

Stop the overclocking and set everything to normal in the BIOS and
your problems will go away immediately.
