Angry RAM trouble

Hey people I was looking and I think my motherboard can only take 1GB sticks or ram and not 2. I just want to be sure this is correct because getting a 2GB stick would really solve a lot of my problems. My board I think is a little fu*ked :-( it will not allow me to have 2 sticks of ram in at once for some reason. Now this never used to be a problem and I have tried the 2 old 512 sticks of ram that used to work but still same problem. The computer dose not load just a lot of beeping :-( anyone any idea’s?

PC Specs:

Corsair TX550M ENTHUSIAST 550W
Intel B85, S 1150, DDR3, SATA III, PCIe 3.0 (x16), MATX MoBo
Intel Core i7 4790K, S1150, Haswell, 4 Core 4.4GHz Turbo
16GB (4x4GB) Corsair Vengeance Blue DDR3 PC3-12800 (1600)
960G SanDisk UltraII SSD + 2TB SEAGATE Hard Drive
Windows 10

Did you look up the meaning of the beep code in the motherboard manual?

Have you checked to see if they're the same speed? It could also be a faulty RAM.
