My 16gb DDR3 arrived today (didn't have money to upgrade motherboard to DDR4). When I pulled out my other memory and put this one in it did the three beep "No memory detected" thing that Asus motherboards do. So I added back the other two RAM sticks I have and looked in Windows if the new stick can be found, downloaded CPU-Z and checked the BIOS:
- CPU-Z detects my new RAM
- Windows detects only my 2 old RAM sticks
- BIOS detects all memory
Also, I had a problem earlier where my RAM didn't work with others, after which I gave up and just removed the 2x2gb sticks I had from my previous setup.
What can be the reason different software detects different hardware? Shouldn't Windows and CPU-Z get their information from the BIOS?
- Asus B150M-A D3
- Intel Core i7-6700
- Sapphire Dual-X R7 265
- Crucial 8GB PC3-12800 (2x4gb)
- Hewlett Packard Enterprise DDR3 16gb (1x16gb) (Recognized as Samsung? Guess they made it?)
- Corsair VS450
CPU-Z only detects slot 3:
