I don't think that would be the issue because my CPU came with a cooler that wont let you tighten it to far.Ive had issues with PC only recognizing half of my Ram due to having my CPU cooler too tight, once it was loosened a bit Bios recognized all my RAM. in my experience windows was showing all the ram installed however only using half, keeping the rest as hardware reserved. the Bios was only reading half the RAM . so perhaps CPU cooler is too tight or not installed properly?
The RAM was sold in a kit. I'm not sure and do not have the manual anymore. I'm fairly new to PC'S and everything so I just followed the youtube video.Was the RAM sold in a kit together?
Did you install the RAM in the correct DIMM slot on your motherboard? (check you manual, it will tell you which ones to use.)
OS=Windows 10Please provide as much detail about your computer as possible.
Need to know the, Operating system, motherboard , is it a manufactured computer (like dell) or custom build ; ie exact MB, exact CPU, exact GPU, Monitor cable, exact ram, exact pw supply, etc. Do not post 16gig of ram; post the exact brand and mode/part# do that for ALL of your parts
I believe you are talking about Crucial Ballistix Ram.
OK, I'll look into that.If ram is not bought as a single kit, you may have issues.
Your motherboard manual will tell you which slots to populate if you are not using all of them.
Test each stick individually with memtest 86.
If each checks out individually, you might get them to work by increasing the ram voltage.
Failing that, return the sticks and buy a single kit.
They were.See page 1-5 here - https://static.bhphotovideo.com/lit_files/403638.pdf
The two sticks should be installed in the second and fourth memory slot, counting away from the CPU. Make sure the latches on both ends of the memory sticks are fully secured (memory is fully installed).
Sorry for the very late response. My PC does not have a space to insert a disk, what should I do?Those do show a compatible on the Crucial site, It is possible one is bad, You can run Memtest 86
Create a bootable CD-ROM, Also an option to run it as a bootable USB

You have to extract it and burn it as an ISO "

Thank you, everyone, for being so supportive but I've fixed the issue. What I did is I just completely took out the RAM and re-installed it, I guess when I installed it I didn't fully snap it in. Anyway, thank you once again.I recently just built my rig and bought two sticks of Battle Stix R.A.M. I bought two sticks of 8 gigabytes. When I logged into my PC for the first time I looked at This PC Properties and saw that I have only 8 GB installed. Does anybody have a fix?
