@wingman90 , welcome to the forum.

 

This is a memory initialization error.  It means that during POST the memory wasn't recognized.

 

The first thing that you have to do is determine if the memory you bought is compatible with the motherboard.  Here is the Product Specifications page: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/omen-by-hp-870-200/13687063/model/15741160/document/c05389962

 

Look at the section titled "Memory/Memory upgrade information" for all of the information on the required memory.

 

Here is the memory that is recommended by Crucial Memory: https://www.crucial.com/compatible-upgrade-for/hp---compaq/omen-870-224

 

Their Ballistix memory is excellent.  If their Advisor recommends a product it is guaranteed to work.

 

The best upgrade for the least amount of money is a boot SSD.  You can look at the SSD's at the bottom of the page in my link.  A SSD will increase boot speed and every other function.

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will tell you how to make the transition from the hard drive (HDD) to the Solid-State drive: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Knowledge-Base/Upgrading-Desktop-or-Laptop-to-a-SSD/ta-p/73048...
