Does anything come up GPU related in BIOS?

Sorry for the delay. I tried to change one of the RAM sticks for a different brand but that was not possible.

I loaded defaults in BIOS as well as tried chaging slots but the results are the same.

I am not sure where to find the GPU entries in BIOS, I don't see any options related to
memory usage or graphics. Is there another way I can consult that information?

There shouldn't be many options in BIOS for a laptop, if it is not there, don't bother. No chance you can try with same brand/model memory sticks?
