If it is being detected thats a good start, however I suggest you download memtest86, burn it to a disk and then thoroughly test your RAM. Even if it is being detected it could still be faulty. Also make sure you are running the ram with the proper timings, and voltage. Which exact kit of RAM are you using? Is it rated at 1.5v or 1.65v?

i have moved the ram to slot 1 +2 and added the old ram to slot 3+4 so i now have 12gb no crashes have occured and if none happen within the next 12hours i will be very happy, assume my computer is fixed and choose a best answer
