Are all the ram sticks identical (same brand, same model)? Is the ram recommended for your motherboard (ecc buffered or unbuffered)? If the answer to both questions is yes, then you can try resetting the motherboard bios by removing the board battery for one minute with the power supply unplugged, then reinstall. Cpuz will confirm if the ram is detected, and how much on the post screen.
