    It's either the wrong RAM or it's not installed correctly including being not fully seated. When you say it won't start up, does it make any sounds at all, if not then check the power cable.

    You purchased the correct RAM.

    I have two hypothesis about what may be going on. First guess is you didn't fully seat the RAM correctly. Make sure you push them in all the way. Second, one or all of the RAM sticks are bad.
