Installed new ram computers won't start

Bought 2 more sticks of 2x8gb from gskill ages line.. to add to my already existing 2x8gb so I could run 4x8gb.. but when I installed the pc would no longer boot. So I removed the cards but forgot witch where the originals. Also I can't access the boot menu and the keyboard won't power. 

 

I'm running 

 

Asrock B450m micro pro

Amd ryzen 5 1600 6cores

Zodec gaming GeForce 3050

 

And I'm trying to install

4x8gb ram sticks by gskill aegis ddr4

 

Though if I could get help figuring out witch 2 out of the 4 sticks where the original that would help. 

 

I can't get to the bios menu, because it doesn't boot that far... and the keyboard isn't working.. 

 

Any suggestions?

If there are stickers still on the RAM sticks, check the serial numbers. Matching pairs will be within +/-1 of each other, i.e. Stick 1 S/N:59641231909. Stick 2 S/N:59641231908. Keep in mind that typically, buying RAM at the same time is recommended as manufacturer's may change parts suppliers and use different IC chips on RAM, while keep the same model.

 

Clear CMOS when reconfiguring RAM to rerun memory training. Also, BIOS updates may help improve memory stability.

When you power it on, does anything happen at all? Any lights on the motherboard or fans spin? Because if not, it sounds like maybe you disconnected the power or something by accident, rather than a problem with the memory.

Cmos whats that?

It's memory built into the motherboard that remembers BIOS settings. You can clear it by taking out the coin battery that should be somewhere board and putting it back in.

Ok so that means it does have power and is trying to boot. Give it a couple minutes as the first boot with new hardware needs to run a test called POST and it won't show anything until it's done. If it goes more than 5 minutes though, something is wrong. In that case try booting with just one RAM stick in. If it works, shut down and try adding the others back in.

It could also be as simple as the RAM sticks aren't pushed all the way in. Sometimes it looks like they are but they're not actually making contact on all the pins.

Its restarts multiple time with no proper boot up. Only for about 30sec before turning off then back on.

Yes, the test results are stored in CMOS so resetting it will clear them.

Did you find out which sticks are the old ones and try booting exactly how it was before the upgrade? If the old ones don't work anymore it would point to something else being the problem. Hopefully nothing is broken and it's just a cable got disconnected without you noticing or something.

Yes, I figured out what the originals where, and tried both sets.

Yes, I figured out what the originals where, and tried both sets. Does the graphics card need to be installed for the pc to boot. Its in the way off cmos.  And it would be easier to rest if it wasn't in. Would it be beneficial to reboot cmos everyone i mess with my ram cards.
