If they are not a matched pair it will not work. If you have two sets of matched pairs. Each pair will have to go into the right pairing slot. Example one set you go in slots 0 and 2 and the other in slots 1 and 3. If you have stickers on the memory sticks look for a group of numbers and letters one group will match it's mate.

It is a motherboard problem. But you can disable that alarm from the BIOS. I would simply raise the upper threshold in zone two from 56 to 60 if I were you. If it still flashes red put it back to 56 and disable it.

SOURCE: Memory setting changed - no
It sounds like what you need to do is reset your bios back to factory settings. You can do this by doing something called Clearing your CMOS. To do this, look at your motherboard for a silver battery. Near it should be three pins perpendicular from the motherboard. On two of them should be something called a jumper. With the computer unplugged, move the jumper to the other two pins. Wait for 30 seconds then move it back. Plug the power back in and start it back up. Everything should be working properly. If you cannot find the three pins, just pull out the battery for a few hours with the computer unplugged from the wall. This will accomplish the same thing, it will just take longer.
