Windows 7: Computer restarts (blue screen) 1-2 times, after adding new ram.

Windows 7 x86
Computer restarts (blue screen) 1-2 times, after adding new ram.


I am new to this forum so i am not sure if i am posting this on the right place, but i hope that i am doing this right

I installed new ram to my computer, i had 4GB ram and i went to 8GB ram. After i installed the new ram the computer restarts when Windows is opening (when i have to type in the password) and blue screen appears with the following error message:

And this will happen the next 1-2 times. After 1-2 tries windows will finally run and there will be no problems, until i turn it off myself and turn it back on. Then the same thing will happen. This is gettin very annoying so it would be great if anyone could help me

P.S i have windows 7 x64 bit

Hello Geir01 and welcome to Seven Forums.

It would help to know your system specs. At the top of any Forum page, click on "User CP" and in the left column click on "Edit System Spec". Fill in as much info as you can. Under make/model it would also be helpful if you indicated if the computer was a desktop or laptop.

How many RAM slots do you have total? Have you tried removing the new RAM and using just the original 4GB? Do you still have the same restart problem?

Have you tried removing the old RAM and using just the new RAM? Does computer restart?
