What are the specs for that particular memory? Did you install it into the slots coordinated in your motherboard manual? Have you updated your BIOS? Have you made sure that it's installed properly? Have you tried booting with just 1 stick installed?

Throw in your old RAM, get a USB stick, download a program called Rufus and make it bootable device. Then download the latest BIOS from Asus' website and place it in the root directory on the USB drive. Then you just flash it from there through the BIOS.

I'd still love to hear the specs of the RAM you bought.

You've enabled the XMP profile from BIOS right?

Depends on the connectivity. If it's e-sata or USB then you should be OK.

Because your CPU is the i3 that only supports 1333MHz RAM, and the new one is 1600MHz that means you need do the OC RAM in the BIOS, but I thinks the old RAM maybe can't OC to 1600MHz. So you are better set the RAM mode to the XMP in the BIOS. Or manual set the RAM speed to 1333MHz in the BIOS.

Download the manual from ASUS website, go to page 2-11 section 2.4.2 "Ai overclock tuner" change "auto" to "X.M.P." and then save, exit the bios setting.

If the PC still can't boot up then you need update the bios, go to the same website download the bios utilities, then update the bios.

to no avail. i can open 1 ram in the bios but if i plug in both. it doesnt start up it goes to windows(loading to user profiles screen) and restarts everytime.

btw i already updated bios.

I think one of them is dead, test the RAM one by one to see which is dead. If they are ok. Then check the sock of MB to see there is bent pin or not.

i tried them both.and both went to bios single plugged. but after that. i couldnt pass the windows loadingscreen again. i would get a blue screen. if one of the pin in the MB is bent, would the old ram not work too?

If both of them don't pass the window screen during the boot, and you set the XMP setting, that means the RAM is not compatible with i3 and MB.
