I've obtained 2x Samsung 8GB DDR3L (PC3 10600S) RAM modules. When I put them in the laptop will not start up.
Are these not compatible or is it a BIOS setting?
If it is BIOS, how do you enter the BIOS?

Welcome to the Community Forums.
The OEM recommended specification for the memory is:
16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets.
10600s runs in 1333MT/s data rate. It can be a better option choosing a PC3-12800 instead.
BIOS can be accessed turning on the machine using the novo button but I don't think there is any setting available to change ram speed among the Idealine laptops.
Hope this helps answer your query.

It most likely be not compatible with your laptop as the main recommended specification do not meet.
Best way to check is to upgrade with a PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L on this machine and likewise to use the Samsung RAM on a PC3 10600S compatible system if available.
