You mean it does the same thing when you put the old ram back or did it keep automatically rebooting AFTER you upgraded your RAM ?
Was there any problem with it before you upgrade your ram ?
You can reboot to Safe Mode ( by pressing F8 while rebooting but just right before it loads the OS ) and select "Last Known good configuration". Does it only do it when you start your game or when it tries to load Windows OS ?

Call me craxy, but you may need to replace your power supply, and if its not that, it is a stuck or broken fan on your graphix card or your cpu.

Stops in the "Starting Windows" screen and reboot the system


It is the operating system. You need to reinstall Windows all over again.

When I start my computer it shuts down and reboots about 4 times before it will finally start properly


Hello

A computer that constantly reboots can have one of several issues, and can be hard to troubleshoot if it will not stay on. Viruses and spyware can cause the computer to reboot continually, but hardware failure or power issues can also be the root of the problem. There several ways to approach the troubleshooting process.

Hardware failure can cause a never-ending reboot cycle; eliminate the most common causes first. Replace memory chips one at a time to rule out a bad stick of RAM. If the memory checks out, boot from the Windows CD and access the Recovery Console. Run chkdsk /R at the command prompt to check for problems with the hard drive. Remove any optional cards that were added in to the computer (such as a sound or network card) to eliminate them as the cause.

Press the F8 key while the computer is starting up to access the advanced start-up options. Select "Last Known Good Configuration," and press Enter. If that does not work press F8 again, and select "Safe Mode" this time. If you are able to access Windows in Safe Mode, disable the option to automatically restart Windows after system errors by right-clicking on the My Computer icon and selecting "Properties." On the Advanced tab, click the "Settings" button under "Startup and Recovery" and clear the check box labeled "Automatically restart." This will allow you to restart the computer without getting stuck in the reboot cycle. Ensure that your antivirus and antispyware software is up-to-date, and perform complete scans for any infections. Remove any newly installed software that may be incompatible with Windows, and update drivers for your hardware.

Replace the power cord to the computer, replace the power strip it's plugged in to, and try a different outlet. If nothing else helps, try a new power supply. Be sure to purchase one with enough power for your computer: use a high-performance power supply for a gaming computer or a lower-performance power supply for a regular workstation.

I installed a new RAM for my pc COMPAQ Evo D500 and when I started heard a long beap sound and system didnot turned on


It is plug and play, it should automatically detect the new RAM with no extra needed work or installation procedures. Remove the memory and reboot, you will get the beep again. Reinstall and reboot again hopefully this is all that needs to be done. Is this new or used RAM?

PC does not recognized all memory installed on an upgrade of RAM


The operating system perhaps does not support anymore ram then this.

Or the motherboard may need a firmware update.

You can get the latest firmware from the manufactures website

REBOOTING PROBLEM ACER ASPIRE T135


Having a constant reboot means u are getting a type of system error. A easy way to stop it is to right click on My computer click Properties, then go to Advanced system settings, and then click settings under startup and recovery. There about halfways down u will se a dab called automatic restart. Uncheck it, and your pc will not restart. Then click start, click run type cmd (open command prompt)
then type: chkdsk /f
then it will ask u something, type Y and close that window. then restart your computer, and it will check your harddrive. Let it do a scan.

good luck

Memory Upgrade causing reboots


Have you tried to start the computer back up without the new RAM module in?

If it doesn't get stuck in that reboot loop, you either have the wrong RAM or a faulty RAM module.

If it does start up but still reboot , then you can start narrowing the issue down to the motherboard.

You should be able to send it right back and pick up the right one. If you give me the MOBO's make and model I can also tell you what type of RAM you should be running.
