Hi all,

Installed 16gig of RAM instead of my 8gig's which were in the same slots (as per the mobo manual)

Tried BOOT advanced options -> uncheck maximum memory
Tried system properties -> advanced > performance > virtual memory > no paging file.

You can find images of BIOS and Task manager below:

BIOS: https://postimg.cc/QVWNhZx0

Ran out of google searches as they all mentioned the 2 above.

Best,
Simon

"Reseating" means to remove the memory cards from the motherboard and then put the memory cards back into the memory card slots while ensuring that the memory cards are fully and firmly in place.

You must install the memory cards per the motherboard's User Guide/Manual. Some motherboards, for example, require that the first physically installed memory card be placed in a specific slot. Verify that the memory cards being installed are indeed supported by the motherboard.
