Generally, if the PC was working prior to adding new hardware, the new hardware is what caused the failure to boot. Try switching the RAM modules around. If the PC still doesn't start, try with just one at a time. If the PC starts with just the first module, but not the second, then the second module is likely defective.

For good measure, you could use MemTest86+ .

If both RAM sticks do work, but only one at a time, you have to consider two possibilites:

1. Mobo is defective - to test this theory, install your RAM like this: | _ and _ |. Then repeat the test with the other stick.

2. Mobo cannot support the combined density of your RAM sticks

or a distant third possibility is that the sticks are not compatable with each other.

Are the two sticks exactly the same?
