lenovo ideacentre 700-25ish memory upgrade new question 2018

installed crucial 16gb stick or RAM and its all the same specs as the stock 8gb Samsung that it came with except it is 16gb. it works for a while then it crashes. I only have one DIMM slot that works so no need to trouble shoot that part. that is why i got a 16gb stick insteasd of going with 2 or 4 8gb sticks. it reads it properly for a while but then blue screen shut down. I really need more than the 8gb so need this to work somehow. 


Any Lenovo techs have an idea on this?  again, the RAM is not faulty. it is something with the motherboard or at the moment.

Edited : 2MB/s to 2000MB/s

LENOVO TS P510 30B5 – fan issue



As my otherwise trusted P510 shuts down, the powersupply fan spins up to 100%, then down to almost idle (you can feel and hear the fan working) even if the wordstations has shut down. Is this a hardware problem ? or a wrong setting somewhere. Hope you can help me.
