    maybe one of the RAM is fried. Try putting one in. sees if it registers. Then take it out and use the other one.

    track down the problem by putting each one of the sticks inside without the other one,and if the system wont boot with one inside ...that one is probably fried

    You have to put them in A1 and B1 otherwise it isn't Dual Channel.
