Upgrading Memory Inspiron 3646

I am attempting to upgrade memory from 4GB to 8GB Windows 10 64 bit. I added Crucial 8GB Single DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL11 SODIMM 204-Pin 1.35V/1.5V Notebook Memory CT102464BF160B to the system, there is only 1 bank, and system will not boot. I thought the new memory might be bad so it ordered a new memory. Same results.  According to the Dell manual I just take out the old memory and add the new.  Any help will be appreciated, thanks in advance.
