the amount of games will have no effect on how much ram you got. I suspect something happened and either the board ram slots or ram sticks went bad. test by only putting one stick in at a time and see if the pc sees them.

What OS do u have?
What version of Windows?
is is 64-bit or 32-bit?
x86 or x64?

(Right click Computer and go to properties to find this info.)

if is it only 32-bit Windows (x86) it can only use 4GB of RAM.
