Are both of these modules the same / supplied by HP?
How are they fitted, in which slots?
What do you see when you boot your PC up in BIOS / Hardware Diagnostics?
Did you run Hardware Diagnostics?
Did you move modules around?
I had some unexplained issues with second memory module that I added to the PC once I bough it - Windows was randomly crashing etc. You can read about it here - may help:
(I have the same MoBo so probably it's fair to assume that there was some lack of contact there - never experienced that problem before! And once sorted late March all is good)

OK, but I'm still not clear whether it's a PC (hardware) or Windows (software) that sees half of your RAM.
Can you check whether it's 8 or 16GB reported in BIOS / Hardware Diagnostics in the first place?
Also, what RAM modules you have? Can you check using CPU-Z? Are they both the same, i.e. module type etc.?
Most importantly, are you still covered by HP warranty? If so, I suggest you speak to HP Support about it.
