Back screen after new RAM (sometimes)
I'm having weird problems recently after installing new RAM in my computer. (default it has 4 GB (2x2), I upgraded it to 8 (4x2))
I have a Packard Bell ONETWO L5710.
I'm having the following problem, it happened twice a row now:
1. I start the computer, nothing happens but a black screen.
2. I turn off the computer, remove all the ram sticks except for one. The computer works fine now.
3. I turn it off again, try with 2 ram sticks (the same pair ofcourse). It still works.
4. I turn it off once again, but put all ram sticks in now. The computer works fine now.
Now comes the weird part; this happened to me this morning. I went to a friend for a few hours, so I turned off the computer. Now I come back and this happens again.
I have no clue why this is happening. I try to boot the computer with all ram in, and it doesn't work, but it does when I pull them out and put them in again?
One important thing: when I came back from my friend and when I tried to boot the computer I got a black screen, but the fan was working really hard.
I hope you guys can help me. My lack of English makes it hard to explain something. Thanks for reading and I hope someone can help me.

There could be a few things going on here:
The second thing you want to do is download and run Memtest86+ on your system.
I would remove all the RAM and then install one of the new sticks in Slot 1 and test it for 3 to 5 passes. Then switch it out for the other new stick and test it again. There should be no errors.
Then give us some information on your power supply: total wattage, total amps available on the 12v rail, and how old it is.
Also check for the obvious: dust or crud in the RAM slot. A single strand of hair can cause errors.
