    Question Why am I getting BSOD after adding more RAM?

    Hi everyone. So I was loading up a game before the new RAM was installed and it was running a little choppy. I went to see if I could even run the game because I had built this PC back in 2016 without replacing any of the parts. The website had suggested 16GB and said I didn't meet that spec. I...
