M17X R4 RAM problem!


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I got the M17X with 6 GB of RAM and stock it was a ram stick of 4 GB + 2GB.


As an aftermarket, I bought the 16 GB (8GB x 2) Corsair Vengeance CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10 and somehow when I put one 8 GB stick it's fine but when I try both sticks it says 16 GB (2.XX GB Usable) and I get BSODs from web surfing (but somehow can game for hours). I tried putting each of the two sticks, one at a time and they work singularly as 8 GB (7.88 GB Usable).


My BIOS version is A11 (official one). Can anyone explain what's happening? Thanks for your time I really appreciate it.
