    Another thing you can try is, take the cover off your computer and see if there is a lot of dust in the heatsinks of the CPU,video card and motherboard.

    If there is a lot of dust it must be cleaned out.

    If you are in a dusty area the heatsinks must be cleaned regularly...

Before install the new ram, it is recommended that you wipe off the gold contacts of the new ram with some alcohol. You can also use pencil eraser to wipe off the contact. Did the new modules fit and lock down?
Link below to Dell - then download Service Manual. There, you'll find the procedure for removing and installing new memory module.

Sometimes the driver that comes with windows is better than the one from the manufacturer's cd. I would try both and whichever one functions better is the one to use.Good luck to you.
