Windows 7: New RAM causing computer boot loop

New RAM causing computer boot loop

Hello, I recently purchased new Ram for my computer. It is identical to the ram that is currently running in the machine. I've tried all the possible slots in what seems to be every combination. This includes mixing old and new ram, and only new ram. This is the Ram

G.SKILL F3-1600C9D-16GXM Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory at Amazon.com

And this is my board

Amazon.com: ASUS Z97-A ATX DDR3 2600 LGA 1150 Motherboards Z97-A: Computers & Accessories

The computer turns on but I dont get any video whatsover and then the computer restarts itself and it does that for a long time. I let it go through 10 or so reboots before I powered it off manually. Any idea what would be causing this?

Do you have the motherboard user manual?
If you don't get one.
Only install the ram in the slots of the motherboard the way the manual indicates.
Make sure they are seated properly.

You could try with only 1 stick of ram if the manual indicates it is okay.

Hi from the ram link and way near the bottom
Quote:
Compatible with Intel LGA1155/LGA1156
The board is LGA1150 not sure if that why or not I'm not an expert but I would take a wild guess and say the ram isn't compatible :/

I'll take a look at the manual and see what's going on. I'd believe it wasn't compaitible but i've been up and running for over a year with two of the exact same sticks.

Try the mem ok button on the top right of the board it will cycle the ram and put it at something that the board deems okay with all sticks. Adding to another older revision kit can have issues with each other. If you have issues you should ask gskill to take both kits back and match them for you.
