RAM speed and type is the key of first read the system configuration to first start teh setup proccess, that is why your setup desk want start, since it can not pass the initation test.
I recommend to replace the RAM to DDR3-1066 or DDR3-800 to be able to pass the test.
I can send you how to bypass the test, but that will cause a lot of problems later when using the system

but look if all use the same VOLTAGE too, and set that in the bios
