Problems adding RAM to M58p

I have a M58p 3484-Y2S with 2x 2gb sticks of RAM running Win7 x64.  I purchased 2x 2gb sticks of RAM to add. When I add the RAM, I get the Memory Error beep (1-3-3-1).  I've tried booting with just one of the new sticks, or both new sticks with the same results. I doubt I was shipped two bad sticks of RAM. It seems as if it's the wrong RAM, but it seems to be right.

 

Computer: M58p 3484-Y2S

New RAM: Crucial 2GB 240 Pin DIMM DDR3PC3-10600 UnBuffered; model # CT25664BA1339

 

Lenovo's recommended RAM: http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:item.detail?...

 

RAM I purchased: http://www.crucial.com/store/partspecs.aspx?imodule=CT25664BA1339

 

Any idea what's going on here?

Re: Problems adding RAM to M58p

Turns out the problem was the subset of RAM. Curcial specified the 'generic' part we needed. However, specifically, the motherboard only supports the 16-chip style of ram -- 8 chip on each side of the board.
