Check your motherboard manual to see the voltage suppied to the new RAM. Check the Ram specifications and note the required voltage for it to operate correctly. In a lot of cases the motherboard will not supply enough power all the time and can cause shut-downs and restarts.
If the RAM need more voltage than the motherboard supplies, replace it with RAM From the qualified vendors in the memory section of your motherboard manual.

    also double check that the new RAM is properly seated in the slots and the clips fully ingaged.
