    Try starting the PC with just one and then the other RAM module to see if either is causing problems.

    The Cool and Quiet setting in your motherboard BIOS will often turn off a CPU fan before a computer finishes booting without ill effect. Are you seeing the fan turn off and then aborting the boot sequence by pushing and holding the power button down or is your computer just not staying turned on by itself?
