I'm running an i5-6400 2.7 GHZ. Mobo is Acer Aspire XC710.

Previous RAM is View: https://i.imgur.com/TUtryPp.png


New RAM is https://shopee.com.my/PATRIOT-Signature-8GB-DDR3-1600MHz-UDIMM-Non-ECC-Gaming-Memory-Ram-PSD316G1600KH-i.38575911.5241607010

I put the RAM in and when i try to boot i only get one long beep. My old RAM still functions.

I've already reset CMOS and alternated and tried only one slot but nothing works.

When you did reset the CMOS, did you disconnect the power cord from the wall ?
Did you take out the battery for 10 minutes ?
According to Acer, your PC should support 2 RAM sticks, each of 8 Go

I did not actually, i removed it for a few secs, pressed the power button with it gone then put it back. When i rebooted my BIOS did seem to be reset though.
