Specs: Windows 10
When I start my computer I get the American megatrends error, I press F2 to escape the problem but it shuts down after a few hours. I don't know what is wrong?
Any help?

Here is what shows up on the screen:

Press F1 to enter the BIOS settings menu. Double check all the settings to make sure they're correct, adjust as necessary. Save & exit (even if you made no changes).

Just looked again again, why is the HDD on ATA 3?

'Error 0164: Memory size decreased'

Do you know how much memory there was before the problem started?
How many memory module are present? Any idea?
Looks like one of the modules is faulty

I did the BIOS setup thing, it worked, in the sense that when I start my computer it the American-megatrends doesn't show up but the computer shuts down after a few hours.

"why is the HDD on ATA 3?"
I don't know why!

I used the memory diagnostic tool of my windows, windows 10, I found that none of my RAMs are faulty. I am working in coding and I run codes that take 10 - 20 hours on MATLAB, when I use MATLAB on my PC it shuts down after 2 hours as a maximum. I use MATLAB 2016
