by noe1123 / September 3, 2011 10:39 AM PDT

So I just ordered these from new egg and poppedthem into my machine. Problem is that it will not boot up. All that I hear is a constant beeping coming from the motherboard. I've tries to do one at a time and still same sound happens. I know it's something with the sticks themselves because it boots up fine with a 2gb stick I have.My question is did I have really bad luc and get two bad sticks? Or is the hardware not compatible with the motherboard. Please help!

Model of motherboard : EVGA P55V, SLI, PCI Express 2.0, Intel Socket 1156 processor.

Model of memory : G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL This is the link for memory if you want to see it

Model of CPU : Its a Intel Core i5 CPU, 3.2 GHz, 64-bit operating system.
