Try the new set without the old ram; they may not run well together. Mixing ram is hit or miss.

No. I doubt it. One ram stick may not be seated; try reinstalling again.

Try pulling out the board battery for one minute with the power supply unplugged. Use just one pair of ram; maybe it will post. Did you overclock the cpu before?

Are all connectors plugged correctly? It could be motherboard was not compatible with the new RAM and by using the new incompatible RAM it damaged the motherboard and your screwed.. But that's just the worst case scenario.. :p  How old is your system?

Not old at all, I've upgraded it over a few years but all the core components are good and new all the connectors are in solid. It's seriously stressing me out so I really appreciate all the support I've got :)
