    If you put in 1 stick it boots. If you take that stick out and put in the other stick does it still boot? If not That stick of ram may be bad. If it does boot the next question is are both sticks of ram the same? If one has different specs it may cause problems when both are in.

    When booting up your computer you may be able to enter and run diagnostics from your bios screen to test the sticks of ram.
