Two 4gb DDR3 RAMs, Only Two Slots and Both Are Working, Only 1 Stick detected
Ellison Rodzen Ajon
The title speaks for the question itself, but to shed some more light on the subject, I'll tell you that I tested both of the RAM sticks and both of the RAM slots and they're all working, except, when I check on my computer, it says that I only have 4gb of memory when it's supposed to be 8gb. I'm thinking it's not a problem with my hardware, so I'm guessing I may need to install something or atleast configure something. Any advice, help, or instruction is greatly appreciated.

Wow. You guessed it. Bravo, Sir. I shall look into it right away and see if I still have my windows 7 installer.
While I was thinking whether to change my software to 64bit, I just wanted to try and test it again. So I removed both of the RAM Sticks and just pushed them both in desperately and shzaam! Checked the system and now its 8gb. And I thought game updates and malware were causing my computer to get slower. heh. Anyway umm.. sorry for troubling you guys.
