I just bought some more RAMs for an old computer of mine, but when slotted in, the computer just keeps beeping and not booting?

The old RAMs: 4x2RAM with this written on them 2RX8 PC2-6400U-666-12-E3

These are the new RAMs: 16GB KIT DDR2 667MHZ ECC/REG KIT OF 2x 8GB DIMM (MMH9677/16GB) Modelnr.: MMH9677/16GB

The black block is the new 8GB the green is the old 2GB https://imgur.com/EAEddEV

Some system info: https://imgur.com/a/o1TyY13 HP - Compaq dc7800 Series Small Form Factor

Ive been told it could be due to some BIOS settings, but im very hesitant to reset the BIOS for obvious reasons.

My plan was to replace old 2 x 2GB RAM sticks with new 2 x 8GB RAMs. But ack not working for some reason, halp please

Im confused, didnt you say it wasnt the RAM but the fact that the slots only take max 2GB and 8GB in total?

Why? 8GB arent really too much, and im frequently finding my docker containers need more than this.

Thanks for your answer about the limit though, guess ill return these RAMs i bought, cheers! :)
