Weird RAM issue
I built a low-end gaming system this spring and I chose to splurge on 16Gb of DDR4 RAM (2×8). I built the system and it has been working since. however, I noticed last week that windows only showed 8Gb of RAM. at first, I questioned whether I had 16Gb to begin with, but today I looked and realized that I had in fact, bought 16Gb of RAM. I troubleshot it to see If it was the RAM or the motherboard that wasn’t working. I found that the culprit stick of RAM worked in one slot but not the other while its partner worked in both. I cant think of a reason why this would happen.
