Did i buy a wrong RAM, if not, why does it show blue screen?

Thank you so much for clicking on this, i'm new to all the computer stuff and i really need help.


I have a motherboard ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5Q-PRO (LGA 775), which supports 1600 / 1333 / 1066 / 800 MHz and has a maximum capacity of 16GB of RAM. I'm using Windows 10.
Right now my RAM is 4,00GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 400MHz .
The RAM i bought and tried to install is 8,00GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 800MHz. It's true that it was very cheap (15$, unused, on Ebay, from China), but i don't think that's the problem.
I have tried installing it, but it showed me blue screen every time i turned on the computer, and the computer came up with a different error. Could it be, that i bought the wrong ram?

Here are the blue screen errors that have showed up on my screen:
ACPI_DRIVER_INTERNAL
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE
SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED


I've googled them but i couldn't find the problem for my computer and i'd very happy if someone could help me, thank you so much!

  1. That does sound like RAM. Can you download and run Memtest: http://www.memtest.org/

    Sounds more like faulty RAM than wrong RAM.
  2. Hello... Typically the max size of the S775 DDR2 slot is 2gb per slot and 8gb total system... what are the sticks your tryng to use? post the web/pic please.

    OK... see the top of the listing? Specifically, where it says this:
