Hi and welcome to TSF :wave:

When you get a restart do you see a blue screen with STOP error on it?
It won't be the RAM if its not a Blue screen as above but power supply or heat related, most likely.

*Can you download this software: Sensors View
*Install it and run it. It'll then give you temperatures and voltages.
*Post them back here please.

-Also, what PSU (Power Supply Unit) do you have make/model/max. wattage? (you can open the case and check by reading off its label.. its easy and no need to touch anything either)
-If you don't know, is the computer an OEM like from Dell, HP etc, or is it a custom build (if OEM, what is the make/model usually printed at front, front bottom or back of computer)?

Will wait your replies before going any further.
