8gb of Ram, only 4gb shows up in BIOS and Windows

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok so i recently noticed that my bios and windows are only using one of my two sticks of G. skill Ripjaws X ram. I noticed this shortly after i updated the bios, and installed my new patriot pyro ssd. I'm running an i5 2500k on an AsRock Extreme3 Gen3 Mobo. I booted windows off of each stick, and booted fine only using 4 gb. I also tried switch the slots, but no luck. If anyone knows what to do it would be much appreciated. I'm probably going to run a memtest right now, but i dont think the ram is failing. Anyway help is much appreciated.
