Hi, I have a Predator Helios 300 G3-571 laptop with Intel Core I7 and 16GB (8x2) RAM DDR4 with dual boot (Win10 and Ubuntu 18.04)
I wanted to up extend the RAM, and looking around I have seen that 3200Hz will be supported even if running at 2666Hz, which is supported by the Helios
So I got two slots of this one: Crucial RAM CT16G4SFRA32A 16 GB DDR4 3200 MHz CL22 (o 2933 MHz o 2666 MHz)
When I start the laptop it does not boot in either OS, not even in recovery mode for Win10, it just starts crunching...
If I go into the BIOS, the whole 32GB show up
I updated the BIOS to the most recent version
