Installed new ram, pc started to act up

Hi so I just installed new ram on my pc and it booted turned on and I immediately went into bios because I thought I would have to change  my ram's profile to xmp but it was already set so I just clicked save and exit. Pc booted up fine and I decided to run warzone with my now 16gb of ddr4 ram but it it broke, I got the error  5692 or something like that. I was like o well let’s see what the internet says and apparently it’s an xmp issue so I was like hm maybe I can just restart my pc and we’ll be good but when I did that, my pc got a automatic repair failure and I then booted it into windows regularly Bc it just gave me the option. I then try to launch modern warfare again but my pc froze so I had to hold down power button and turn it off manually and I turned it off again and then went into chrome and then I got blue screen :) . 
I got the exact same everything for the ram, except color xc . I know it’s ram issue (i hope) but I don’t know what to do. The ram worked fine initially but I’m liek just a little scared now. Thanks for taking the time to read and thanks in advance for responding to help me with my issue!

You can try to clear CMOS so your BIOS settings will be reset and I believe it will retrain your RAM that way too.

Nevermind my previous, read the entirety again.

 

Yeah, always a good idea to start over as far as training/OC when adding new hardware.

Is removing the little battery the only way to do that? ;-;

No, it depends on your motherboard. You can look it up in the manual. You can short 2 pins on the motherboard with a jumper or if there is no jumper with a screwdriver or something, or sometimes there is a button that says CMOS that you can press instead. Taking out the battery will do the same. I think doing any of it for like 5-10 seconds will be enough. I also read that you should unplug your computer first and then hold down the power button or press it a few times, so you discharge it if there is any static left and then you can go ahead.

If you don't have your motherboard manual I would just google your motherboard's name and clear cmos and someone will probably explain a step by step for that particular board, or to be sure also look at the manual online on the manufacturer's website. You'll figure it out :)

Ok, Thank you so much for replying! I’m just staring at the battery right now Bc I don’t have a jumper (asrock b450m pro 4) but I’m too scared to remove it 😂, but thanks again!

Well it's 2020 so chances are you will find a youtube video, so you can look at someone doing it before you do it ;) often they will have a little trick too maybe or some advice what to watch out for.
