I attempted to upgrade the RAM in my Mom's computer from 4GB to 8GB, as 4GB is no longer enough. I thought it was going to be a quick, simple install. This is not my first RAM upgrade, I've done numerous RAM upgrades on desktops and laptops, new and old. When I put the new RAM in and turned the computer back on, it would turn on for a few seconds, then shut off and back on and off. So I resat the RAM and it still does the same thing. So I put the old RAM back in, and now it's giving me a beep code for no memory detected. This is a computer I built myself for my mom around May 2015. The specs are as follows:
Asus H81M-E motherboard
3.0GHz Intel Pentium G3220 CPU with the stock cooler
Western Digital Caviar Blue 320GB Hard Drive
The power supply is one that came out of my Lenovo PC when I upgraded my power supply, I believe it's 250W.
The new RAM is PNY MD8GK2D31600NHS-Z, 2 4GB sticks that came as a kit. The old RAM is Crucial CT2KIT25664BA160B, 2 2GB sticks that came as a kit.
I've tried reinstalling installing only one stick of the old RAM in the slot closest to the CPU, and I still got the no memory detected beep code. I also tried resetting the CMOS with the jumper, and that didn't help either, I still get the beep code. I don't know what else to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
