http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... this is the ram

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/ite... this is the motherboard

I just upgraded my system, with these two items with a power supply also,
i read the faq to see if it could see my problem. But it didnt. The problem is that the motherboard for some reason it does not read one of the sticks which is 4gig ram, 2 4gigs. I have tested both sticks and both slots, they work. One of them just wont show up for some reason. Any ideas? Thank you in advance!

the 2nd link can't work this moment.
The name of the motherboard please? :) 
And check if you already update to the latest bios for checking your problem.

Oh im sorry ill relink also the name of the motherboard is GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P AMD 760 AM3.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/ite... this is another link.

I updated the bios from the website. It did not work. I am also not familiar with setting up bios, although i did change the voltage as some people suggested but that did not work either.

Q - What OS? If you have a 32-bit OS then max is 4GB with 3.0GB~3.5GB usable.

Q - Where are you seeing this?

Open the Resource Monitor and look to see how much Hardware Reserved is listed.

Yep, 2^32 limits you to 4GB ; more information - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop...(v=vs.85).aspx#physical_memory_limits_windows_vista

The image above assumed you had Windows 7. Your best options are Windows 7 Home Premium x64 OEM or Windows 8 Preview (free for now) - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/iso

Windows 8 $39.99 - http://windowsteamblog.com/windows/b/bloggingwindows/ar... release date is 10/26/2012.
