Windows 7: Windows failed to start after RAM upgrade

Why not just remove the ram you added and see if the problem goes away?

Well I could do that but then it doesn't happen all the time and moreover I want to know whether it's a problem with the RAM or the slot.

Running memtest for nearly 11 hrs now with the new RAM. Completed 8 passes, still show no errors. I will upload a picture of the memtest screen later on.

Thanks

Just to update - I haven't had that booting issue ever since I ran the test and re-installed the RAMs. Will report back if and when I get the error again

Thanks
