I installed new ram that i found just lying around not being used, so i took these 2 ram sticks that was probably not meant to fit in my computer and pressed them in the free ram slots. They had the perfect length but the chips looked different. I had my computer off while doing this and i had 8 GB ram before installing the additional ones. Then when i turned my computer on again i hear 5 long beeps and my power light blinking. After a minute or so it stops beeping but continues to blink. I have tried removing the new ram sticks and only used my orginal one but still the same problem.
