HP Pavilion - 15-cs0051wm RAM Upgrade

HP Recommended
Pavilion 0051
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I upgraded the HDD drive to an SSD and thought I'd also boost the RAM. It had an 8GB already installed so in the other slot I added another 8 that I bought from Best Buy, a PNY brand. I got the black screen with 3, 2 flashing lights from the Caps Lock.

 

I took the PNY memory out and it booted up just fine. Is the problem with the memory I'm trying to add? Brand? Is there something to update before I add it?

It has 8 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM (1 x 8 GB) now and supports 16GB (2 x 8GB). You can use SAME existing 8GB of RAM or use the following compatible RAM

Those are the specs of the PNY brand. Do both need to be from the same brand?
