I cant boot up my new pc with any more than one stick of ram in at a time. The ram is fairly new and my mobo has a max of 64 GB and i was only using 32. I seriously just want to play some games. Help please.
Mobo- ROG b450
Ram- DDR4 8 Gb G-Skill Ripjaws
 
Sounds like some bad ram or a bad socket. To find out which, try the following:

Test a single memory module using memtest. You can find a memtest live cd or even some linux isos.

Once that module passes, test the other module in the same socket.

If both modules pass, the ram is fine and it's the socket on the motherboard. If either module tests bad, you've got bad ram.
