Your RAM is damaged if CPU-z shows 8Gb and you hve 16Gb installed.Go to bios (UEFI) and look for the ram amount if it is shown as 16Gb then try to reinstall your copy of windows.

Of course you can try to use the windows 7 loader and acritvate your Widnwos illegally again to see if the error occurs again.If you dont have the error after using the loader then just reinstall your copy of windows and activate legally with your product key.

Please type Resource Monitor into Start Search box, rightclick result to run as Admin, click on Memory tab and post back a screenshot of the chart showing RAM apportionment.

Test your RAM - Test with Memtest86+.
There are specific steps to test both RAM and slots.

Swap your RAM sticks, check for debris in slots. Run Sticks individually to check detection, then add another stick to check again.

Remember to touch metal on or inside the case before touching any chips or components, to avoid ruinous static discharge.
