I would recommend checking with the manufacture or the place you bought it from What Brand? Sometimes you get what you pay for You might want to try checking your BIOS It also depends on the type of motherboard you have Many old motherboards had this issue with brands of memory, type of memory and number of chips per side Check you motherboard manual or their website as to which RAM type your motherboard supports If the memory is supported try increasing your I/O voltage a notch or 2.
