Hi, ive just upgraded my Lenovo G500s ram by swopping the stock 1x4gb stick with 2x8gb sticks (corsair vengence, 1866MHz, DDR3L).
Problem ive is that the bios is only recognising 8gb instead of the 16gb it should be seeing...
I've tried removing 1 stick at a time to check if it's a bad stick or bad ram slot, but then the bios is only reporting 4gb per stick.
Do I need to configure some settings somewhere?
Greatly appreciate any help.
Serial number is: ******

Someone's suggested to me that because the new ram I've bought is low voltage, that might be the problem, but I've read up on this and believe that low voltage ram is backward compatible , so shouldn't be an issue.
