Are you sure you bought the right type? and did you try switching them around (putting one in one slot and vice versa)

Go into your bios and just hit F10 once you are there. It will save the updated memory information ( you might as well check the memory addresses and installed memory while you are there). Once the Bios has been updated the F1 message should disappear.
