Windows stuck at loading with new HyperX ram

Hello,

I was running a Kingston 4GB ddr3 ram @1333 speed and today i have bought a kingston hyperx blu ram.

After installing the new Ram my bios is showing 8 gigs of ram but its stuck at windows loading( window animated logo doesn't appear).

After removing my new ram my PC is booting fine with old ram. Please suggest something.


My pc specs :

Intel i3 @3.06
Gigabyte H55M-D2H

Full specs : @pastebin

    ohh!! you knew that mixing different ram kits isnt reccomended.
    to make those 2 work as a pair you need to set timings, voltages and frequency identical which will be real hassle


    so is it worth a try ? i can see the timings like CL,tRC,tRF for my both rams so if i equal the values of two wil it work?

    or shud i change my ram and buy a pair?

    Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support and would like to offer our assistance. The HyperX RAM runs at DDR3-1333 CL9 JEDEC standard which is the same specification as the 1333 ValueRAM, so no timings or voltage need to be adjusted and they should be able to work together, just not necessarily in dual channel mode. If your computer does not boot with the HyperX memory alone in the same slot as the original memory, that points to an issue with that particular module. We stand by all out products and can replace it under warranty. Please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

    Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.
