check the ram stick again, and make sure you put it in properly, i had it too once, i added 8 more gb ram.

and when i booted my laptop, it didnt see the ram. i checked again......... wasnt put in properly.

 

after i put it in properly it worked !

With Win10 being new it may be the rest is set aside for video ram as is the norm for Intel GPU.

 

Otherwise it doesn't like it for some reason. The module may not be fully compatible with the hardware.
