Can you see and get into the bios when you turn on the PC ?

or do you see nothing but black ?

Did you get the same type and speed memory ?

Not sure then, the specs say it will handle 2 4GB sticks.

DDR3 1333 MHz SDRAM, 2 x SO-DIMM socket for expansion up to 8 G SDRAM

Try re seating them.

32-bit Windows can't see 8GB of RAM - only the first 4GB.
It may be this which is causing the problem.
Does each stick of RAM work OK in each slot, on its own?
Use MemTest to check out the RAM.
