Hi guys and gals

I bought new memory yesterday, kingston 2x8GB sticks. These

My motherboard is an ASRock H55M Pro and my processor is an Intel core i5 660 3.33GHz

When I insert the two blocks my computer just freezes at the startscreen(press del for setup and so on) and I can't do anything from there.

When I only insert one of the two 8GB sticks I can enter bios, but when I let it try to boot windows I just get a blue screen with some error message.

I can't figure out whats going wrong, as far as I can tell and read everything seems to be compatible

Any ideas anyone?

my quick guess is that Asus idea of 16gb total is 4x4 gb, there are no 8 gb sticks on their QVL (not that that is conclusive), but the non pro version only supports 8 gb & has 2 slots.

Hi. This is the memory that is supported and it does not support 8 Gb sticks: http://www.crucial.com/upgrade/ASRock-memory/ASRock+Mot...

So 4x4gb sticks will do the trick, I guess? :) 

And thanks you both for the quick response.
