Dell E7440 i5 4310U 16GB RAM Upgrade issue

Hi,

could somebody help me, please. I recently purchased 16GB (2x8GB) 1600MHz RAM modules from Corsair but when I insert them into the machine the laptop doesn't even start. The POST LED tells me that there's an issue with the memory.

Reading Dell description, Corsair description 16GB are supported by this model. Tried the modules in another laptop and they are working just fine.

Any idea? Thanks

Did you purchase DDR3L or DDR3? Only DDR3L is supported by the Latitude E7440. https://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/19/SLN153768/EN
