Hi everyone, thank you in advance for the help.

I just I nstalled more RAM on PC and it booted up in Safe Mode, stating that it did so because of system instability.

Compenents:
—Motherboard-ROG strix z390-f Gaming
—Original ram installed-gskill ripjaws V (2x8gb 3200mhz)
—New ram ADDED-gskill trident z (2x16gb 3200mhz)
—Windows 10 Home

I do heavy video edits for work so I needed much more ram than my original 16gb. Not sure why my installation is not working, I built this PC myself...

Anything helps,

When I check the support page for that board, there are at least four bios updates that address memory compatibility. Are you running the latest bios?

Thanks for the quick reply! I am running bios 2.20.1271

I am not sure if that is the latest. When I boot up, it was attempting 3 times before loading into safe mode. I went back into bios and changed the DRAM frequency from 3200mhz to AUTO and it seemed to fix my issue I think.

Asus boards do that; load defaults when it fails to boot. That is normal. So is it working correctly now?
