when this happened to me, I eventually traced the problem to a duff Ram slug. Try taking out slot 1 and 3, run the pc for an hour or so, you tube is a good way to pass the time. If no issues try the removed slugs in slots 2 & 4, to ID the bad ones. Don't know it it will help but it was the cause of my windows 7 kernal power error.
