Need help, please!!

I don't know what happened, I rebooted my computer and it wouldn't even POST, so I started checking things and figured out it is my RAM slots. If I put any of my 4 dimms in either slot 1 or 2, the computer won't post. If I put those same dimms in slots 3 or 4, the system boots. I have tried clearing the CMOS, that didn't help, I don't know what to do. What do you think the problem is?

I really need help with this one, any info would be appreciated, and the mobo is a P4P800-E Dlx.

only thing i can suggest is what youve done, but leaving it for some time to completely clear, unlpug cmos battery psu leads and the mains lead into psu leave for a good hour or longer if poss, it seems odd that a reboot would do it but sounds like possible bios corruption or mobo failure

Yeah do what bradmax said, basically unplud everything that is giving power to the machine. Take out the CMOS, and unplud the computer. I suggest unplugging everything on the system for abotu 1 hour.

I tried all that, the ram slots are toasted, oh well, I got my hands on a P4C800-E deluxe, so I am good to go.
