    Multiple things you will need to check. You are going to be running 16 tests. You need to check if the PC boots with each stick placed in each slot. Maybe before that try doing a bios update with the working ram slots then try again with all sticks installed. Your PC shouldn't automatically fail if the ram speed is faster than the supported speed by your bios because everything normally gets clocked according to the JEDEC standards which would be 1333mhz and 1.5V on DDR3 with a standard set of CAS latencies.

    Oh if all sticks work in slot 1 and 2 but not 3 and 4 then slot 3 and 4 are damaged on the motherboard.

    Not much you can do. The board is 6 years old if I remember correctly so warrenty is gone. You can try sending it in for repairs but I doubt anyone will be able to fix it. Time to start looking for something new.
