Did you do what I asked you to ? :|
Remove the memory and power on the motherboard.
If by some chance the memory really is at fault your motherboard will sound an alarm indicating no ram.
Thats a good sign, saying its not the motherboards fault but the memory.
Take the memory to a computer shop or store such as best buy and have them test it.
If the memory is a failure start the rma procedure with newegg.
Tell them you do not want the same memory but an exchange for a different one at equal price range.
