3 Long Beeps 2 Short After Memory Upgrade Fail

HP Recommended
Omen 870-224
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I went to upgrade the memory in my system. 

1. I have one system - My desktop OMEN by HP Desktop PC - 870-224 ProductZ5M58AA Serial4CE741384M

2. says i can upgrade to 32gb.

3. Google Search says 32gb.

3. says 32 gb everywhere except in one spot ... says 32gb. 

4. Then on this page it says 16gb and that is the only place


So here is how i got my error. I removed the 8gb stick. Wore proper grounding. Put in the 2 x 16.I had knocked the small black wire of the  wifi chip and had to remove graphics card to get the cable to click back on the chip. 


I restar and start getting 3 short and 2 long .. open back up the patient then i reseat the graphics but BUT when i restarted I had forgot to plug black cable back into graphics card. ... I plug cable back in...


still getting 3 short and 2 long beeps. opened machine... unplugged cable.. same results. Checked the seating on all chips, connectors,  I have pulled board battery and reset that way. I have done multiple hard resets. I have done all testing with old memory this with the original memory back in. i have pulled graphics card out and tried to boot sans memory card. 


NOTHING... I am concerned that BC i have thrown off the machine with the memory it is not booting. I cannot get anyone from HP to answer me on this and the Virtual Assistant does not want to own up to it...LOL... what can I do?
