82F1 Mobo XMM3 not installed
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a 2018 HP OMEN desktop that has 8gb of RAM on 82f1 mobo.   I purchased 2x8gb of DDR4 2400 ram to upgrade.   I cleared the CMOS by removing the battery and inserted the 2 new ram, but only 8gb is recognized.  XMM1 shows 8192mb but XMM3 not installed.  The BIOS screen won’t let me change the memory settings, only accept the defaults.

 

Odense2-K motherboard

 

What could be the problem?  Bad mobo, bad XMM3, update bios, ???

 

TIA

You should not have cleared the BIOS from something as straightforward as a memory upgrade. 

The desktop BIOS would have performed memory training without that.

 

Did you purchase an indentical pair of guaranteed compatible memory from a mainstream memory maker?
