I understand that you are having problems using more than 8GB or RAM memory.
I will like to know the RAM memory part numbers that you are using, and the BIOS version.
Thanks for reverting. Can you please guide me how to find out the RAM part no. and the Bios Version?
I could manage to collect the below details. Don't know of how much help they will be but hoping for the best -Description:Operating system: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (version 6.1.7600; build 7600)Name: Microsoft Windows 7 UltimateVersion: 6.1.7600Build: 7600Install date: 13-08-2011 16:36:37Model: DH55TC__BIOS: Intel Corp.

I have a DH55TC motherboard running two 2GB RAM. Recently i have purchased Corsair 8GB DIMM module with 1600mhz. My pc is detecting the RAM in bios but system is not running. It is getting struct in "Starting windows " my Processor is i3 and using win7 x64 OS. kindly let me know what i should be doing. Thanks in advance.
First of all, I would like to inform you that this motherboard has been out of support since June, 2013.
However, please provide me the following information in order to double check if all the components you are using are under specification.
- AA# and serial # of your motherboard:
- Current BIOS version:
- Complete Processor model number:

It looks like all the components you are using are compatible.
You may want to try updating the BIOS since you are running an older BIOS version.
There are 7 newer versions for this specific motherboard, therefore, I recommend you to install at least 3 versions before updating to the latest one. For example update to version 0038, 0043, 0046 and finally 0048.
This link will provide you the different methods available to update the BIOS http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-022312.htm
Thanks for the advice . Updated the bios to 0044. But of no use. Removed the other RAM and tried running the
system with the 1x8GB only but the system is struck at "starting windows" and blue screen is appearing and restarting.
Try updating the BIOS to version 0046 and then to version 0048.
Please check the following link. It will show you the supported memory configurations.
Sorry to bump up an old thread. Even I'm facing the same issue. My system already had 2x2 GB RAM. I wanted to add 8 GB more. Got one and installed it and windows was not loading, BSOD. Then I got a 4 GB one and same issue. Tried all the steps mentioned in this thread and nothing helped. I had a Linux Mint DVD and I tried booting using that and I was able to boot properly without any issues. Then I tried to install Windows 7 again, still no go, the system restarts. I would appreciate any help regarding this issue.
Having a similar problem too.
My PC has the following specs :
CPU: i3 540
GPU: Gigabyte HD 7750
HDD: WD Caviar Green
RAM: 2x2GB modules (not sure what make, probably something local and cheap)
OS : WIn10 TP
I got myself a 4gb Corsair RAM today for the same system. (http://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B009CILPRI?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00)
The BIOS recognizes the new RAM, but the windows boot fails everytime and it gets stuck in a reboot loop.
The windows boot logo appears (the 4 blue squares and the revolving white dots) and then it restarts again from the intel motherboard screen.
I got a few BSODs too a few times, like <irql not less or equal> and another a kernel error
I tried resetting the BIOS with the jumper, I tried simply using the corsair ram, with the old ram unplugged and still didn't work.
It works fine with just the old ram sticks.
And it boots up fine with a Ubuntu USB drive with 8gb of RAM.
Please let me know the current BIOS version installed on your system?
Would you please send me the system information? Please type “msinfo32” under search and send me the information you get?
