How come my computer keeps rebooting randomly after installing new RAM?

by on February 4, 2010

Q: I just installed 2 1GB of DDR memory to my eMachine today and now it keeps rebooting by itself every few minutes. I did have one stick of 512 and now I maxed it out with 2GB. Anything I can do or is it bad memory?

    Probably bad RAM, Try running just one of the 1GB sticks, and then just the other to see if you can isolate the problem to a single stick.
