I had the same problem (didn't recognize one of the aftermarket [Samsung] RAM cards) and tried 'reinstalling' the cards with no luck. As a last effort I tried doing the diagnostic (holding D at startup) which reported no problems - but when it booted up it recognized the other card!!
 
(it’s at least easier than taking the machine apart again; and also may just be a good idea to do any time you install new RAM to force the machine to recognize it?)
