My computer has been crashing out when I am gaming. I have been going through a process of elimination. I took one of my ram sticks out and it still crashed. I put the stick back in and now I cannot get my computer to boot and it keeps beeping. What do I do????

Thanks Kez

If your MB has 4 ram slots try inserting the modules in different slots but always insert in same colour slots IF only 2 slots then insert it properly so that it is firmly closed the ram clips
