Title explains but my computer blackscreened when i exited a game of rust,
Upon launching it said overclock failed. (i don't run an overclock.)
Launched into windows and taskmanager says " 8.1gb hardware reserved"
I have tried every online fix i can find i will add some photos hopefully someone has experience similar, thanks in advance.

-check ram slots
  • aswell as ram sticks each working fine alone.
  • windows is identifying there is 16gb but telling me only 7.9gb is available to use.
-bios displays 8000* memory but also 16000 on the next page?

- motherboard asus b350 f

Did the ram come in a kit together or are they separate ram
