    Yes, it's almost 100% certain the RAM was causing all your original BSODs. Due to the file corruption that might have occurred you may find some further work is needed to repair files before the system will boot after installing new RAM. We will be ready to help.

    The test showed your ram is defective. It probably caused the BSOD. You don't leave defective RAM in your computer, ever.

    Do you have one 8GB memory DIMM or two 4GB memory DIMMs?

    Update: I just got my new ram today. Corsair Vengeance 16 GB. 2 x 8 DDR3 ram. I installed them onto my motherboard and tried starting up my pc. The problem is that my pc will start for 5 or 10 seconds then shuts off for 5 seconds and then starts up again and shuts off again. Stuck in a loop here.

    First, remove the memory, swap the memory slots they are in. Make sure when you replaced the memory you didn't knock anything else loose. Reseat all cables and connectors.

    Try one 8GB DIMM. If still fail, swap with the other. Sound like you may have gotten a new/defective memory DIMM.

    Made sure all cables were connected. The only cable disconnected was the RESET SW cable. And then I tried each stick on the 1st dimm slot they both let the pc start up without that loop occurring.

    My computer only starts up with one ram stick but not both

    What is the part number of the Corsair DIMMs? Check it against the Memory Supporty List on the Gigabyte web site.

    Manul has the following for Memory instalation:

    1-4 Installing the Memory
    Read the following guidelines before you begin to install the memory:
    •• Make sure that the motherboard supports the memory. It is recommended that memory of the
    same capacity, brand, speed, and chips be used.
    (Go to GIGABYTE's website for the latest supported memory speeds and memory modules.)
    •• Always turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power outlet before installing the
    memory to prevent hardware damage.
    •• Memory modules have a foolproof design. A memory module can be installed in only one direction.
    If you are unable to insert the memory, switch the direction

    Dual Channel Memory Configuration
    This motherboard provides four DDR3 memory sockets and supports Dual Channel Technology. After the
    memory is installed, the BIOS will automatically detect the specifications and capacity of the memory. Enabling
    Dual Channel memory mode will double the original memory bandwidth.

    The four DDR3 memory sockets are divided into two channels and each channel has two memory sockets as
    following:
    Channel A: DDR3_2, DDR3_4
    Channel B: DDR3_1, DDR3_3

    Due to CPU limitations, read the following guidelines before installing the memory in Dual Channel mode.
    1. Dual Channel mode cannot be enabled if only one DDR3 memory module is installed.
    2. When enabling Dual Channel mode with two or four memory modules, it is recommended that memory
    of the same capacity, brand, speed, and chips be used and installed in the same colored DDR3
    sockets. For optimum performance, when enabling Dual Channel mode with two memory modules,
    we recommend that you install them in the DDR3_1 and DDR3_2 sockets

    Am almost certain that this ram is compatible with my PC. The part number is CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10. And I installed it onto the correct slots

    Yup, it's listed under Model Name: Z97-HD3 DDR3 1866.

    What speed are you running the memory at? Looks like 1866 is recommended if I'm reading the chart right.

    Running it at 1600. I can play with the settings in BIOS and see what that does.

    Decided I’ll just keep my PC going with 8 gigs of ram since that’s all it’ll run with. Still stuck on a startup repair thing. Still can’t get to the desktop.

    Did you try running at 1866 since that's the specified frequency for ram?
