try just putting in 1 stick, and see if it boots up. Do that with both, one at a time and turn computer on, and see if that works. If it srarts making a weird beeping noise from your mobo when you turn it on then you'll know which stick is bad. Also whats your computer specs?

Run Memtest86+ on each stick (one at a time)

Ok. Try what I said and also try memtest86+ like true folder said and hopefully you can figure out if everything is working with the ram. Also make sure they are in all the way, and are snapped in.

when you go into control panel, then into system, how much ram does it say you have? Should show all your basic info there.
