Why my MacBook 7,1 isn't booting after 16gb RAM update?

Text:

Hello :)

I upgraded my macbook 7,1 (MacBook 13.3” Mid-10) with a new SSD. It’s running High Sierra with the EFI 68.0.0.0.0.

I decided to upgrade my RAM with both 8Gb RAMs bought here : [product|IF160-070]

With both the 8Gb RAMs installed, the MacBook is beeping at booting (1 beep every 5 seconds) and nothing is happening (black screen).

However, it’s working with one 8Gb RAM and the original one of 1Gb.  Both 8gb RAMs are working separately when paired with the original 1Gb RAM. And the Mac is working and it’s says 9 Gb of RAM installed.

I don’t know what to do to solve this problem… since I want to have the 16gb RAM on my MacBook. I read everywhere that it’s working on this model.

This other member had the same problem here but it didn’t help : [post|508673]

Thank you in advance !
