Have you tried moving the ram into different slots?

9/10 the problem is mix-matched RAM, and unless all of the RAM is the same Frequency and has the same CAS Timings chances are it won't work.

Ideally if you want 8GB and based upon specs purchase a 4x2GB DDR3-1066 or DDR3-1333 kit or identical kits; example: 2 kits $60 G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Model F3-10600CL8D-4GBHK - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

You have to make sure after market ram will work in your computer. Lots of high speed ram modules need more volts than standard ram and HP/dell computers will not or cannot provide this so the ram will not work. If it does not work and you have tried all the slots then the chances of you getting it to work are not likely return it and get ran either suggested by HP or get something like kingston value ram most of the time this is the bog standard ram should work.

Go to the Kingston web site and access their upgrade configurator app.
Enter your pc model and brand, and you should get a list of compatible ram kits.
If the ram you bought is not on the list, return it in favor of a kit that is.

Which kit? Please provide a link.

If you only use the '2 Kingston 2GB DDR3' can you boot? Keep the RAM in the same colored DIMM slots, or often it's:
CPU: | - | 2GB | - | 2GB | or CPU: | 2GB | - | 2GB | - | depending on the MOBO. As I've read your specs there's 4xDIMM slots supporting up to 8GB of DDR3-1066/1333 or 4x2GB with 2GB/stick max.

I Didn't buy kit, i bought 2 bars from local pc store.
I think i found the problem.
So far i've found that my MOBO doenst support all rams, only couple of bars.
But pretty hard to find stores that sells those.
I'll link here the ram that i need.
HERE!
That is the ram that Will work if i get 2 of those.
Now i just need to find shop that i can trust and order.
I really appreciate help! :)

Ram is sold in kits for a reason.
Ram from the same vendor and part number can be made up of differing manufacturing components over time.
Some motherboards can be very sensitive to this.
That is why ram vendors will not support ram that is not bought in one kit.
Although, I think the problem has lessened with the newer Intel chipsets. Still,
it is safer to get what you need in one kit.

The problem 'might be' support for the RAM you have selected, here's what I've read:

● 512-Mbit, 1-Gbit, and 2-Gbit non-ECC memory technologies
● single-sided and double-sided DIMMs
● DIMMs constructed with x8 and x16 DDR devices; DIMMs constructed with x4 SDRAM are not supported


Manual (pages 38-40) - http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/Suppor...

Also, mix-matched RAM isn't a good idea as I stated earlier, and proper installation is described on (page 41).
