It is probably the memory speed/timings/voltages settings. Try setting those to the correct configuration and see if the problems still occurs. if you need assistance with that, look through the forum on setting memory timings.

Boot into the BIOS. There should be a splash screen immediately after turning the machine on that offers options "F2 for Setup, F8 for boot menu" or similar options. I am not familiar with your system in particular however, it should be a fairly standard setup. (I assume you have been through the general BIOS configuration if you are, in fact A+ certified as your profile pic. attests". After entering the BIOS though, There should be something like "Standard Options" and "Advanced Configuration". Under advanced config (or similar) there should be "Integrated peripherals" or other setting that should allow manual memory configuration. Look for something that states "DRAM ___________" where ___ is something indicative of setting/options. If there is a BIOS update for your motherboard (look for Dell downloads for your machine), that may offer better compatibility.

Sorry I can't be more exact. Every machine is a tad bit different.

i understand what your saying and let me recheck the bios cause i don't think my system supports that option. i thought i might have had to change something software wise cause the ram shows up at 8GB in system properties but when i open the task manager i think it comes up with 4GB's for some reason im kinda puzzled

What RAM did you buy? Registered ECC RAM?

It probably is the correct type of RAM. Does each module have 9 or 18 chips? Do you have issues if you insert only 2 modules (try all 4 before giving up)? The RAM either is compatible or it isn't.

How many modules are installed? Since you bought 4 x 1GB modules, you should see 4GB in system properties. According to the specs, the maximum is 6GB (1GB per memory slot); therefore you can't have 8GB of memory.

the dell poweredge 4600 can hold a maximum of 12 GB's right now i have 8GB. i think i might have put the ram in the wrong way. i have a set of 4 1GB ram sticks on the top riser card and then i got 4 1GB's on the 2nd riser out of the 6 slots

The reason your operating system is only showing the 4 gigs is due to the fact that it is likely a 32-bit OS. Threre is really nothing you can do to see above 4 gigs nor use more than 4 gigs unless you install a 64 bit OS OR, install a server OS. Even 32 bit server OS's have much lower visible/useable memory amounts but, you should be fine with only 8GB (as if 8 GB isn't a LOT of RAM anyway though!!)

the thing that concerns me a lot is that it says i have 8Gb's in system properties but not in task manager, second i installed windows server 2008 enterprise edition 32x and it says that the max is 64Gb's of ram, third my system can handle up to 24Gb's
