You said "sticks" of memory. Plural. So why not try with one stick and
if that doesn't work try just the other stick.
Hard to tell just exactly what was the error from "a warning about
protecting the computer". Perhaps that is the boot virus protection in
the BIOS. See if you get further by disabling that option in BIOS.
