    Its is Windows 7 64 bit
  3. Do you have 2 kits installed of http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220571 or only one kit?
  4. 2x4gb for a total of 8gb
  5. If the kit is labeled as G2 Series 4GB PC3-10666 DDR3, then the total amount is 4GB (2x2).
    Try installing CPU-Z and see what it does report regarding memory.
