More details please. Platform ?  Amount of old RAM ?  Amount of new RAM ?  Where is the boot process stopping ? Does the system boot fine with just the old RAM ?

There is the problem. You bought a DDR4-2400 memory, while your CPU only accepts 

DDR4-1866/2133 and DDR3L-1333/1600. I hope you can return it and buy a new one. If not, resell it or save it for the future, but it wont work with your CPU.

No there is not the problem. Even if that was the problem, it doesn't explain this:

But you can have ddr4 2400 ram with that cpu, but it will just run at the default ddr4 2133 speed. You could even use ddr4 3000mhz ram with that cpu, it will just run at 2133.

You are right, I guess I was thinking of having DDR4 memory in a DDR3 motherboard. Being that not the case, we need more information to find the problem.

its defnitly a ddr4 mobo as the old ram is also ddr4. The issue is probably not with the ram as putting the old ram in doesnt work

Try using one stick of Ram of the new Ram one at a time and try various ram slots, It may be just one Ram stick tripping the whole system up
