I have upgraded the ram on my laptop from 4GB to 16GB. I have verified that the ram is compatible with the system. The system boots without any issues. It runs fine until I try to make a large file transfer or run a virtual machine. It crashes and reboots without warning. Essentially anything that require more memory than what the original memory could handle.
I have ran Memtester. The result is all ok.
I checked /etc/security/limits.conf and there is no mem limits set.
The bios does not give me any options for memory.
I do not see anything in the system logs from a reboot. It shows the virtual machine start stop and the startup after the crash.
What are some diagnostics I can use to see what is happening?
Is there anything I have to do the OS to handle the new memory?
