Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums,
We'll try a BIOS reset here first, see where that gets you. Try this first with both modules of your new ram installed - if nothing, replace old ram and try again.
1) Unplug AC adapter from laptop,
2) Remove battery from laptop
3) Press and hold power button for 30 seconds
4) Reinstall battery
5) Plug in AC adapter
6) Try to power on laptop
