Whatever you did in bios, go back and undo !
The BSOD shows a stop code. What is it ?
What caused you to change RAM in 1st place -
I won't insult you by asking if it is the correct RAM and you took
precautions to install it properly.

You can get into safe mode simply by tapping F8 key during startup, immediately after the 1st screen pops up without going into bios.
