hi, first of all thank you for reading this. i don't know much about computers but im good at searching nice porn videos hehe. i don't know if there is someone already posted a topic for this. My motherboard is Asus (P5G441T-M LX3) http://www.asus.com/ph/Motherboards/P5G41TM_LX3/#specifications At first i used a Windows 7 Pro system type 32-bit with 2.0 gb installed ram (, I used CPU-Z to get the info of my old 2gb ram ) ddr3 module size :2048 mb max bandwidth :pc3-10700(667MHz) manufacturer :kingston part number :9905471-001.A01LF serial number : 821B2169 Now, i want to add an additional 4gb ram(kingston kvr16n11/4) to make it to 6gb ram. i change my OS to Window 7 Gaming OS with 64-bit. But every time i inserted the new 4gb ram and when i turn on my computer theirs no beep and will not display anything on screen. I removed the new 4gb ram and everything works fine. i reverted it, removed the 2gb ram and only insert the 4gb ram problem again appears. :( . so i go to my friend to check if my new 4gb ram works with just the same OS it works fine in him. Then i tried many times. when suddenly i got lucky it starts up. when i check the properties of my computer the installed memory(RAM) is still 2.0 and obviously i dont know why, so i check on the CPU-Z if they detect it and it was there, the cpu-z detect it. but still 2.0 ram.. hmmmp.. so i badly need help to people with much more understanding with computers, why is this happening to me? Thank you for reading...

RAM sticks can be very fussy about what they partner with. In general, if you are going to put two sticks in, it is better if they are the same size and preferably from the same manufacturer. Since the mobo supports upto 8GB of RAM and you already have one Kingston 4GB stick, I would recommend buying a second 4GB stick of the same type. At least some of your problems may stem from the fact that you are pairing up a 2GB stick with a 4GB stick.

 

I have looked at the specs for your mobo, via your link, and it is not clear if the RAM slots are 'equal'. Sometimes it is Slot 1 and Slot 2 and if you are using only one stick it should go in Slot 1. The mobo manual should give guidance on this.

 

As to why the 4GB Kingston stick should only report 2GB via CPU-Z I can only think it is misreading it as you say it shows the full 4GB in another computer and you have upgraded your system to 64 bit. What does Windows control panel say - 'Start / Control panel / System' ?  Does it show 4GB or 2GB ?  Hope this is of some help.

Might wanna check the dual channel compatibility and speed or BIOS settings. By dual means paired (2 x 2 Gig or  2 X 4 gig)/same brand (preferred).
