Can you swap out one of them to be sure the new one you put in also matches. It probably will but just want to make sure.

If you put all four in what does the bios post show. Does it show all the ram?

I would suggest you download Memtest86+ as an ISO and burn it to a bootable CD and then boot from it and run the test on all 4 sticks. If that works then its not a hardware problem.

I'll have to call for more help. At least that will prove the ram and motherboard slots are ok.

Go to Msconfig and uncheck Max memory(Start>Run>msconfig>Boot>Advanced Options)

You could also post a screenshot of the memory tab in Resource Monitor
