Ram for hp compaq 8200 elite small form factor

HP Recommended
hp compaq 8200 elite smal lfor
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a hp compaq 8200 elite small form factor that I am trying to upgrade the ram in. After some research, I purchased 8gb ddr3 1600 cl10 240 (2x4gb) thinking it should be compatable with this pc. Now after installing it, the PC does not power on. Was I wrong aboutt the compatability of this ram and PC? If so, can anyone suggest 8gb of ram that would be compatable?

This is the ram I purchased;

Hi:

 

I put 4 of these in my 8200 Elite CMT last Fall.   Works great.

 

I only paid $29 bucks apiece for them back then, so I have no idea why the price went up so much.

Several years ago, I put 4 of these in my other 8200 Elite...Works great.

Thanks for the response.

 

Do you have any idea why  8gb ddr3 1600 cl10 240 (2x4gb) wouldn't work? It seemed to be compatable from what I could find online.

You're very welcome.

 

The only thing I can think of is that the timing specs are different from either of the ones I bought.

Paul, 

 

Are you sure that was an 8gb stick you got a while back?

I thought I read somewhere that this motherboard was limited to 4gb per slot.

You can put 32 GB (4x8 GB) in the CMT and SFF.  See page 10...

 

...the largest memory capacity possible is 32 GB, assuming dual channel mode with four x 8 GB dual ranked unbuffered DIMM memory configuration.
