I recently ordered G. Skill RAM:

to upgrade my current specifications of GSkill RAM:

Once I placed inside the computer, I booted it up, but nothing appear on my monitor. My monitor then went to sleep a few moments later. My old 2x2 was from 2013 and my new 2x4 is from 2015. I tried different combinations(for example: one 2gb(old) and one 4gb(new) which worked) but as soon as I put the 2x2 in dual channels, it wouldn't boot my computer. I have a friend who has the same RAM as me except it says 2014 on it, and my new kit worked on his computer wonderfully. Could this be a problem of age? Or maybe my RAM is disfunctional?

Below are my specs:

MB: Asus M5a97 Le R2.0
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition
GPU: EVGA Gtx 560ti
RAM: 4gb (2x2) GSkill SDRAM 1600
PSU: Corsair 650w
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

Please tell me if I am missing information in my post,
Thank You
