Hi, I hope someone is able to help me with this

i have installed 6 gb ram on my pc and recently upgraded my windows 7 from 32 bit to 64 bit.

However my Bios and my windows are only able to read 4 gb ( 2 of the RAM sticks out of 3 ). When i run pinform speccy , the program is able to read all 3 sticks stating 6 gb ram.

Is anyone able to help me out in identifying the missing 2 gb ram

Try updating your BIOS,

also you should see if your Mobo requires you to have your memory installed in pairs?

if it a dell or hp check the vendor spec or run crucial memory advisory to see if the mb max ram was 4g.

Maybe one of the sticks has an issue. Was it a kit? Try Memtest.

k found it .

i guess maybe the stick was loose or something (which is weird as they were all locked)

I took them out 1 by 1 to find which one was the stick and switched it around with another stick and it worked. Thanks!
