    @simrick are there any Windows 10 Drivers?

    No, it only has W7 as an OS option in the dropdown menu.

    I downloaded the Win7 64-bit chipset and installed that. Then rebooted with my old RAM - no erros or problems.

    Tried a new 4GB chip in slot 1 with all others empty. This time it got as far as displaying 1018MB OK and halted.

    Rebooted with old RAM - again no issues.

    What this is all boiling down in my mind is problems with the motherboard itself but quite hard to fully determine that. If the original RAM makes the computer work properly there may be no choice to using as purchased. I have seen computers where not all of the RAM slots worked.

    I think we do have to acknowledge that the Crucial 4GB sticks, which are listed by them as compatible, are all 1.35v volts not 1.5v.

    I recently got 2 x 8GB modules from Crucial and according to their data, they will work in either 1.5V or 1.35V mode depending upon the motherboard.

    Within the BIOS, look for the Reset option. It may be named Reset to default, Load factory defaults, Clear BIOS settings, Load setup defaults, or something similar.
    Select it with your arrow keys, press Enter, and confirm the operation. Your BIOS will now use its default settings – if you’ve changed any BIOS settings in the past, you’ll have to change them again.

    This worked for me once servicing a client's computer:

    -remove all rams form the slots
    -turn on the computer and wait for the BIOS alert beeps (takes 3 to 40 seconds depending on the machine)
    -if there are no beeps, wait 30 seconds at least
    -turn off the computer
    -replace the ram DIMMs in their respective position
    -turn on the computer (it should work at this point)

    Although the troubleshooting is a little primitive it might work

    Thanks. I have done that more than once but it didn't help.
