Recently I replaced my RAM in my Mid 2009 iMac. I replaced the current RAM with 2 x 4 Gb. sticks of RAM. However, now that I replaced the RAM, my computer has started to randomly crash often although I am able to use it for 10-60 minute periods before the crash. Does anyone know how to fix this? Here is my crash log:

Your kernel panic logs are relating directly to your ram. The characters after your backtrace are memory addresses.

Your solution is to reseat your ram first, try one stick at a time when starting up, then lastly replace the ram stick if needed. Also, the issue could be the ram slot on the logic board in which case it may need to be replaced.
