Be sure that the dimms meet the below specifications. Try one dimm at a time. Remove any PCI and PCI-E cards and if necessary connect the monitor to the motherboard VGA port. Don't use any adapters.

I think you're on the right track. I have 2 video cards I'm using, so I unplugged them and plugged one of the monitors directly into the video port on the motherboard. The machine booted right up and recognized the new RAM. Unfortunately when I turned it off and plugged the cards back in and started it up it did the same thing with getting stuck at the Windows splash screen. I guess I"ll have to try to find better video drivers. Thank you so much for your help!
