RAM problem

Hi, I am still new here. And I just have the desktop itself. I have a slight problem with the ram. Here I have several questions:
1) Can put the RAM more than the recommended by the manufacturer of the motherboard? And if possible, how am I going to do that does not happen the same problem?
- I use the Asus INTEL P8Z68-V LX Z68, first I only use the 2x4 Kingston 8GB RAM (KHX1600C9D3K2), After that, I add another 8GB RAM the same type. After installing a few minutes, windows blue screen occurred.
2) How do I want to fix the windows problem?
- I am using Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
Thanks for the help =)

Perhaps we could start with a system spec, motherboard make and model, CPU etc. It's very helpful It's absolutely critical to know what we're dealing with. it is a pleasure to assist peeps with a bit of trouble, but if you can post more info. it's easier for someone here to help you.

Sorry,read again and got the mobo details.

My oops.

A z68 Chipset motherboard should have UEFI, meaning it should support any amount of ram you can physically fit into the slots available on the board.

It is possible the new ram has arrived damaged (it does happen)
have you tested it outside of windows?
If not here is a link to show you the best way to do that.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
(it needs to run for awhile/multiple passes to give a reliable result)

Ok thanks for your response =)
CPU: Intel Core I7 2600 LA1155
Mobo: ASUS P8Z68-V LX
PSU: Cooler Master GX 750W
GPU: ASUS GF-TI PCIE 1GB EN550GTX
RAM: Kingston 8GB 2x4 KHX1600C9DK2
This is the beginning that I use, everything was okay. When I add the same kind of 8GB of RAM, Windows continues to trouble.

If you replace the existing 8 GB of RAM with the new 8 GB in the same slots, do you get a blue screen or have any problems?

So, this is not a problem with the RAM that exceeds the limit? But why this problem occurred after I added more RAM.

because the ram you added was possibly damaged.
This is why I suggested testing it outside of windows using the link I gave you there.
You could also of course follow the http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

Though it does seem pretty obvious from what you are saying that new ram = equal blue screen
I don't understand why me asking you to then test that ram seems so strange?

It won't damage the new RAM if it will fit in the slots properly. If it won't fit in the slots properly, you have clearly bought the wrong type of RAM.

This is just a quick way of finding out if the new RAM is compatible with your motherboard and works properly.

Yes, I was testing the first 8GB of RAM that I use, with Memtest86.
