So i was playing PUBG and out of nowhere my pc freezes and my keyboard and mouse LEDS shut off but my screen is still on and showing PUBG (frozen) so i knew it was the ram and removed one stick and my pc worked again, but then when i placed the other stick the DRAM_LED flashed red and my pc didnt boot, so i removed the stick and only used one to update my bios, still no luck, also tried to go to an old version and also removed my CMOS battery and put it back and still didnt work, i know for a fact that it isnt the ram that is faulty because i tried both (individually) and they worked, also dont think it is my motherboard because i got it a month ago and all of the ram slots work as long as i only use one stick, i also tried placing the other ram stick while windows was booting and CPU-Z detected 8GB but my bios and windows didnt. also tried with XMP and without still no luck. any help please?
Use 1 ram stick = works
check if ram slots works = yes they work
Update bios & go back to and old version = no luck Remove CMOS = did but no luck
Try XMP and no XMP = no luck
Press memok with both ramsticks = nothing happens and pc doesnt boot
Use memtest86 = did and no issues with ram

EDIT: I inserted the other Ram stick while windows was running and CPU-Z detected it and it shows 8GB on windows but when i try to reboot it doesnt boot into bios or windows and the DRAM_LED starts blinking again
