Hey so I just built my PC

Specs: PSU: HX850 GPU: Nvidia gtx 1060 6gb Processor: i5-6600k Motherboard: MSI Z170a krait gaming 3x Ram: 2x8GB (SK Hynix 1Rx8 PC4-2400T-UA2-11)

When I put in both of them in Slot 2/4 then the lights are on DRAM and there is no display, only fans spinning etc. But when I put in a single one RAM then it works.

How can I make them both working together?? Please help!

When I test the other Memory 1x8gb it doesnt work and it says DRAM. But when I test the only other one alone it works. What does this mean?

Sounds as though you have one faulty memory stick.
