Hi I wanted to Upgrade My Ram From 8gb to 16 gb so i bought new ram with same speed and memory my old ram is Hyper X Fury 2400mhz 8gb and I bought Corsair Vengeance 2400mhz 8gb but when I Installed both rams at first I Got Black Screen and Just light in my keyboard but no visuals on monitor not even startup, then I removed my old ram and continued with new ram it booted up then i tried inserting old ram and remove the new one again i got black screen, then I removed the CMOS battery from the Motherboard and tested those rams by inserting them one by one it worked and I booted up my pc with both rams(16gb 2x8gb) but then I started to get your pc ran into a problem driver_irql_not_less_or_equal error again and again, my windows was not even loading properly and i get this error, now i can only use one ram. Can anyone tell me how to solve this issue and use both rams without crashes and I am Not getting windows updates, is it causing me problems for adding more ram or something else??
I bought my Computer 2 years back My Specs Are: MB- MSI h110 pro-vh, Ram- Hyperx Fury 2400mhz 8gb, GPU- Zotac GTX 1060 6gb, PSU- 800w.
With DDR4, mixing sets like this can end up with problems like this. I would first verify each module works correctly on its own and run a memtest. Be sure to make sure there is no power in the motherboard when swapping modules or you can damage stuff!

Once both modules pass, I would try different combinations until you can boot. Then I would immediately run memtest. If it passes, you got lucky. If it does not, start over again on different combinations.
