Sometimes you can get dust or debris in the RAM slots which takes a microscopic inspection to see and remove. Google says to use a rubber pencil eraser to remove it - I use a can of air and luck. This is often why reseating RAM will help.

If problems persists I would test my RAM and slots following the steps here: RAM - Test with Memtest86+
