Certainly sounds dodgy. Did you try the new ram alone and see how it goes?

Your PSU (power supply unit) may not be up to the job

no i didn,t try alone good idea and is there away of finding out about the psu

Do you know the rating of the PSU? Take a look at it and it may have the output printed.

Why would fitting extra RAM cause the PSU to suddenly become inadequate? I can't believe this is the cause of the problem.

Tell us more about the PC and it's OS.

This sounds like a classic non compatible memory module,i have also encountered a similar problem in the past.

Try this link click here this will tell you the Ram required for your pc.

if you are there are limits on how much memory older operating systems can take.

Then there is the BIOS, maybe a upgrade ? then there is possibly the PSU and size of it. Also how many DIMM Slots have you got, do you know the Motherboard model. The more info the more we can help.

PSU rating is not going to be an issue with RAM size. Don't complicate the issue by worrying about your PSU.
