  1. Memory could be incompatible or you may need to reset the bios to default.

    Worse case could be damaged memory slots or the motherboard screws being too tight causing the slots to bow.
  2. Before reaching for straws, how about a simple explanation. A bad ram stick.
  3. Money on simple explanation :)
  4. I TRIED SWAPING THE 2 RAMS IN TO DIFFFERENT SLOT STILL SAME PROB.
    BUT IF I TRY ANY ONE AT A TIME IT IS WORKING FINE.

    PLEASE HELP SUGGESTING A SOLUTION FOR THIS IF POSSIBLE
  5. The 2nd memory you bought might not be compatible with the other.

    Are they both in the correct slots? They can’t just go in any slot, there is a certain sequence and are colour coded to be accurate. Check your manual or the internet on where to have your memory.

    What motherboard do you have? Memory types come with different voltage requirements, are you certain you bought the right memory for your system?
