Lenovo Y40-70 RAM Upgrade Issues

I recently upgraded the RAM from 8gb to 16gb (2x8gb from kingston). To my dismay, Lenovo has proven that I have instead downgraded since my RAM mghz dropped from 1600 to 700, a more than 50% decrease in speed.


Since Lenovo has decided I am not tech savvy enough to use the BIOS and has partnered with Insyde to lock us users out of our own product, I am wondering if Lenovo customer/IT support has any idea how to fix this issue.


To be clear, the issue is that I am unable to access the BIOS which is what you would normally use to access the hardware in your system. Due to "upgrading" my RAM size, I have inadvertently downgraded my RAM speed. A solution would be nice, since Lenovo believes its clientele to be stupid and locks its clients out of the BIOS.
