Have you tested the ram modules, maybe one is bad? Try swapping and re seating.

I think you need to discard the old 2+2 modules and get another Kingston of the exact same spec. Otherwise save for a full blown matched set of ram. You have a issue with using the two different types with this mobo.

Your setting in Boot Advance Option are not correct.
