Richarda, I am not familiar with your board. But, you should be able to set your timings frequency and voltage in bios. With you old sticks in, go into bios, set the first 4 timings to 9-9-9-24, set the Command Rate (CR) to 2, set the voltage to 1.5V and set the frequency to 1333. Save and exit. It should still boot into windows, but if not, don't be concerned, just hold the power button down and the computer should shut down. Remove the power cord, remove the old ram and replace it with the new ram. Be sure it is seated properly. Push it down until the clips come up. Push the clips all the way up, just to be sure. Plug the power cord back in and boot up. It should boot unless the ram is bad.

Just like to thank you guys for your help

Solution was to replace the memory with a different manufacturer DIMM and the PC works OK. No idea why the other stuff didn't work. I tried to test with the recommended +memory test from a USB drive but that wouldn't load either.

Thanks
