My motherboard has 4 memory slots.  If I install 1, 2 or 3 RAM modules in any of the slots the computer will boot.  But if I use 4 RAM modules the computer goes into a reboot loop.

Did you test each module in the same slot...one at a time?  Test each in Slot 0, then test each in Slot 1, and so on.

I tested each module in different slots so I know all the slots and all the modules are individually good.

Are all of these modules the same make and model?

The modules are the same make but slightly different models. They are 2 pairs. Memtest can run for at least an hour without errors. With 3 modules installed, the machine starts after a few on-off cycles. When it does start, the cursor freezes sometimes. The Windows Experience Index Test crashes when evaluating CPU performance.
