Upgrading Dell Inspiron 5402 (P130G)

I want to upgrading my Dell Inspiron 5402 (p130g) from 16GB dual channel DDR4 3200AA to 32GB dual channel DDR4 Corsair Vengeance CMSX32GX4M2A3200C22. After I replaced it, the screen doesn't display anything. However, according to the datasheet, it can be upgraded to 32GB. What could be the issue?

Gaming RAM is too aggressively timed for this system.  If you want guaranteed to work RAM,

You will need to return the Vengeance RAM, which will never work with this system.  If you'd rather buy from Kingston:

@ejn63​ Thank you, I should have asked here first because now I have lost a lot of money. I will replace it with the Crucial 2x16GB CT16G4SFRA32A as you suggested.
