Go in to resource manager and screen shot what you see right at the bottom for the PHYSICAL MEMORY section.

I would imagine that you have disabled "memory remapping" in the bios.

Sounds strange. But you could swap the RAM into different DIMMs.
I mean use the RAM from DIMM1 and put it in the second DIMM and so on.

You could also check if one RAM stick is faulty by using only one RAM and run memtest86+.
If you don that with all 3 sticks you will find out if one is buggy.

Besides why you have three sticks? This is guaranteed no triple channel board.

Swap the ram to see if it isn't the motherboard then go to store and buy new ram. Some ram doesn't last forever.
