Corsair vengeance 1600 memory not working in biostar TXZ68K+

Hello,
I'm building my own computer and finally out it all together last night. When I turned it on, it did turn on but only for a few seconds, then it turned back off for a few seconds before turning on again.

I checked the LED indicators and saw that it was a memory problem so I tried having only one stick of RAM in; didn't work. I tried putting it into each slot and trying with each slot but it still didn't work.

Any suggestions?

My specs:
-Intel i5 3570k CPU
-AMD Radeon 7850HD 1GB GPU
-8GB(4GBx2) RAM(Corsair Vengeance)
-Biostar TZ68K+ Motherboard
-550W PSU

    No I just found out about that. How can I upgrade my motherboard without a working computer? And will this fix the problem or will this just fix a different problem?
