Dell XPS 8700 Memory Upgrade

Hey Guys - Trying to upgrade the subject machine. So I bought 2 sets of these: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Intel 100/9/8/7/6 Series Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GXLL.

After installation, the computer beeps twice.....pause, beeps twice.....pause and won't boot, screens won't come on or anything.

I've tried to remove and reinstall the memory twice with the same luck; second time I unplugged everything from the computer, same thing. I even tried to put the old memory back in with the same results.

I thought it would be a simple matter, take the old ones out and put the new ones in? I see two beeps means no ram detected.... am I missing something?

Thanks in advance for your help!
