Windows 7: computer restarts when i try to load windows

You have the latest BIOS version.

Your hardware is reserving more than 8gb of your RAM so that explains the disparity reported on System page. I would confirm that your Video card uses this much RAM because its seems high. A hardware expert will know for sure.

Have you tried to set SATA controller to AHCI in BIOS setup yet to retry install?

Another suggestion from BlueRobot:

Ask if they have placed the RAM sticks in the specified slots by their motherboard manual, some motherboards require RAM to be in certain slots if using a certain amount of RAM or certain slots are being used.

Do they have a matched set of RAM? Have they checked compatibility with their motherboard?
