Where did you get the RAM? Did you verify if it's was compatible with your board?
Check your motherboard user manual, it usually contains a list of compatible RAM modules.
A good place to get RAM is also directly from major manufacturer websites like Kingston, Crucial, Corsair, etc... They all have a "Memory Finder" or "Memory Configurator" section on their website and you just need to enter your PC or laptop model or in your case your motherboard model and it will automatically propose compatible RAM that is 100% guaranteed to work with your hardware.
see if your computer will boot up with the old ram. If so, then you did not mess up your computer to a point where it's unfixable. You then know that the problem is the new ram. The solution is to get some new ram. And call in the warranty on the old ram (the ram that you just put in that you say doesn't work) if you can. If, even after you put in the old ram the computer doesn't start up... Well, this is something nobody likes to talk about.
Shut down pull all the DRAM and reset the CMOS, then try the new stick in slot one and see if it boots, if it does, shut down and go into BIOS, raise DRAM voltage + 0.05, shut down, insert your old stick and give it a try
I would have done that MC, but i lost the BIOS cd and it would be risky for me to do that since i honestly have no clue but now it works thanks to Tradesman,just raised the voltage a little and now it works but thanks to everybody who tried to help me. #Solved
