Either one of your RAM modules is bad or you have mismatched speeds. Are the speeds exactly the same?

Manually configure the memory settings in the BIOS using the manufacturers specs. Test the RAM with memtest86, each stick individually, then together.

If the memory is dual data then they could fail in pairs and not fail single.

As above memtest would show it. Try that or microsoft's memory diagnostics or better still both or more to be sure.
