  1. Try THIS:

    1) START
    2) type "msconfig" (no quotes)
    3) boot
    4) advanced options
    5) uncheck "number of processors" and "maximum memory"
    6) OK
    7) REBOOT PC

    I hope that works.

    They were both unchecked, for fun I checked Memory as it seems to have 8 GB in that field, booted, still only 4 usable ): Any other tricks?
    Thanks!

    The RAM DIMMs may not be seated properly, try re-seating the DIMMs.
