I ordered Crucial 8GB Kit 2-4GB DDR3 - 1333 (PC 10600) - After installing computer would not boot up. My original Ram is PC3 8500S...should this matter? If not why would it not load up?

It can be difficult to get the RAM seated properly. Try popping it out and re-inserting it. Really dig the edge in before clipping downward.
