Hello everyone,

I just got a Compaq CQ5320F that was given to me. Iv been doing some upgrades on it and heres my issue. The motherboard that's in it is a M2N68-LA (Narra6) with 2 DDR3 Ram slots. HP's website says the board ONLY supports 4GB Ram Maximum. Im currently running 2x4GB ADATA RAM sticks. Everything works fine but the Bios Says 0 RAM installed. Windows reads all 8GB. Im on windows 10 home 64bit. Is it safe to run 8gb in this board or should I drop it to 4GB? Why does the bios not see it?
