Mate sounds like your ram is bad. I would RMA or return it to get a different stick.

Are there any special configurations before installing new RAM?
I just remove CPU casing and connect new RAM to motherboard relevant port.

Try the larger new RAM in the first slot (closest to processor) by itself and then with old RAM in second slot.

Remember to ground yourself with a wrist strap or by touching the case before touching any component. Unplug power cord and hold power button to drain power before changing RAM.

If this fails, call Kingston Tech SUpport which is some of the best in the business. They will help you test the RAM in all configurations then RMA it on the spot if necessary.

Here is a video showing how it's done.
