I currently have a Gigabyte Ga-990fxa-ud5 R5 with 32gb of ram installed.  The other day I upgraded to a 500gb ssd.  Then the problem started.  Windows 10 x64 system window started showing 32gb/16gb usable.  So I downgraded back to 8.1 x64.  downloaded Rammap from Microsoft, and ran it.  It showed that I have 16gb driver locked on the motherboard.  Before I upgraded all 32gb's were usable.  I wasn't running any vm's what so ever.  I have researched the problem for over a day, now.  And all the searches came up with driver locked memory with vn's installed, which was no help what so ever.  I have posted on several other computer forums, and have a support ticket with gigabyte. about the problem.  Does anyone know how to unock driver locked ram?  if so can you give me a step by step guide to fix the problem?
