In my RAM settings, my PC recognises that I have 16 GB installed but it says that only 7.95 GB usable. I installed a second 8 GB stick yesterday to replace an old broken one of the same kind.

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Can you please state the full specs to your system? Might want to parse a link to both sticks of ram.

Anytime you mix ram it's a coin flip whether the sticks will work together.

Got the proper bios?
