After doing a quick once over on the HP support site for this product I noticed all memory cards listed are 1,333 MHz.
The processor speed is also 1,333 MHz.
As you stated in your post the cards you purchased are 1600 MHz.

Your processor more than likely doesn’t support the 1,600 MHz memory cards.
Even if it did support the 1,600 MHz cards they would still only be running at 1,333.
It’s definitely why your PC isn’t booting.

Here’s a link to the page I was viewing:

I think you should return the memory cards and buy the right ones that are compatible with your processor.
If you are looking to upgrade to 8 GB of ram this will be the spec of the cards you need to buy no matter which brand you choose:
  • 8GB DDR3 SDRAM PC3-10600 (1,333-MHz) Non ECC (2 x 4GB)
