Hi, are the two sticks a Matching pair, if not this could be the problem. Also have you tried them in both slots, first one way and then the opposite way. Hope that makes sense.

For your info, not rebuking you - all Caps is considered as shouting, and is frowned upon in the Forum.

Hope you get your mem working ok.

Probably unconnected but your SHOUTING BUTTON seems to be stuck.
