I just bought 8GB RAM for my PC and it works fine, except that sometimes the video card won't boot up when I turn my PC on, or I get a CPU temperature warning. I also don't get the bleep after BIOS.

After booting a couple of times, it works fine. Any ideas?


Motherboard: ASUS P5Q
Processor: Intel E8600
RAM: 8GB (was 4GB, replaced all sticks)
Video: ATI HD 4850
DVD writer
PSU: 450w

Out of curiousity, how are your temps when it works fine? Have you run Memtest86+? –  Breakthrough Oct 10 '11 at 12:35
