Windows 7: New RAM, PC keeps restarting, freezing

You need to be using this program. You download it and burn to a CD/DVD. It will boot and do the tests on your ram before your system ever gets to your C partition and Windows 7. Windows 7 built in memory test isn't worth much.

According to the manual, you should be installing the RAM Modules to the WHITE DDR3_1 and DDR3_3 sockets, that is the first and third in from the front of the case, or the second and fourth from the CPU socket. If you are installing only a SINGLE RAM Module, then install it to either of the sockets I listed. Only if you have 4 RAM Modules (all of the same brand, memory size and specifications) should you put a RAM Module in a Blue Socket.

Read this tutorial.
We are trying to understand your post and yes at times we do get confused.

Your post are all over the place. At this time just test your new ram. Forget about the old ram.
You haven't told me where you got Windows 7 Enterprise.

Try this tutorial.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Once memtest 86 is burnt to a disc it should boot your computer into the test. If it doesn't boot into the test the download or burn is not correct.

Already tried both blue and yellow slots. Still won't explaind, why a single 4GB stick is not working.

From your post # 10

With new ones only:
If I place only one stick in, I can't run memtest, coz the PC keeps restarting before listing the hard drives.
You must change your boot order in bios to boot first from a external media.

If you have a CD/DVD or a USB thumb drive with Mem86 on it. With you computer off and the new ram installed. Insert the CD/DVD or thumb drive you have Mem86 and boot.
It should start the Mem86 test.

Let us know when you have read this tutorial.
