Pull one ram stick out then start the computer, if it starts up normally then put the second ram stick back in and it should start up fine.(if it doesn't then the second stick is either faulty or not properly seated.)


If when you restart with only 1 ram stick, if it beeps, replace it with the other ram stick and try to boot.


Please make sure to observe precautions of ram installation such as shutting PC off, unplugging power, touching metal inside the case to discharge static, hold ram by the edges, etc. this Link will help.
