Just got new RAM. Motherboard beeping like no RAM installed. I tried putting my old stick back in. Same Issue.

I have the ASUS z97-A gaming motherboard, and I just got 16GB of new dual-channel RAM (2x8gb) to replace my old 8gb stick. I checked the motherboard manual to make sure they are compatible and to the best of my knowledge it seems that they should work. I seated the sticks correctly and tried to boot only to get beeped at (the no RAM installed beep code). I tried each of the sticks individually. Same issue. I tried to reinsert my old RAM stick. Same issue. I don't know what to do. Please Help!!!

    Asus board come with a mem ok button, its an internal compatibility system , when you swap memory on a board like it, the system was expecting a different ram and needed you to press the mem ok button to adjust itself to it to get the best performance out of it.
