How ome I get a black screen on bootup after upgrading my RAM?

Q: I have a Toshiba Satellite L675D. I bought it less than a year ago and wanted to upgrade the memory. I ordered the proper memory PC3 8500, the same type that is in there and listed in the manual. I am going from 2 x2gb to 2 4gb modules. 8 gigs is the max and my bios is up to date but my computer shows the startup screen then goes to a black screen with a small white line in the corner. I tested the memory in my wife’s laptop and it works fine. Does anyone have a solution for me?!?
