:welcome:   jimbob 50,
Please provide the brand and model name or number for the PSU, can you also tell us if this is a fresh install of Windows 7 or are you using an earlier installation on a previously used HDD.
Before purchasing your Ram did you confirm that it was compatible with your MB by checking the MBs memory QVL, see my canned text below;
Is the Ram in the slot nearest to the CPU.
For the best and most stable performance you should where possible purchase a CPU and Ram that have been tested and approved by the motherboard manufacturer, this is referred to as the QVL ( qualified vendors list ) understand though that there are too many products released for them all to be tested so other hardware will be compatible but not proven to be.


I checked but did not see your Ram but did note the following which suggests you may need Ram in two slots for it to work, your MBs memory QVLs here the info is not very clear I'm afraid  :(
• 1 DIMM: Supports one module inserted in any slot as Single-channel memory configuration
• 2 DIMM: Supports one pair of modules inserted into either the blue slots or the black slots as one pair of Dual-channel memory configuration
• 4 DIMM: Supports 4 modules inserted into both the blue and black slots as two pairs of Dual-channel memory configuration
