We need your system specs.

Also, where did you get the ram and what brand is it? There is a ton of cheap "high density" ram floating around on less reputable stores (especially on ebay) and it doesn't work properly in most computers. If your system doesn't support high density ram and that's what you have, it'll show up as much less ram and it will most likely cause errors.
