RAM is not working

by chinesh4 / October 6, 2017 4:34 AM PDT

memory specification for my motherboard is 2 x DIMM, Max. 8 GB, DDR3 1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066 ECC,Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory. It was working fine at 1866mhz but unfortunately it has stopped working and it now only working with 1333MHZ. Can anyone suggest me what is the solution so that it could work with higher frequency as before

Overclocking has always been iffy.
It starts out working and then parts age and now it does not work.
Unless you're running some very ram intense stuff I doubt you will see a difference.

Overclocking and how high you can go decreases with time. This is a known thing about overclocking and can irk folk that thought it was forever.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
