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.

my windows control panel says
Model : Gaming OS
dual core cpu
E5800 @ 3.20GHz
Installed memory(RAM): 2.00 <Note: i only insert now the 2gb stick because if i try adding or changing only the 4gb stick my computer wont start up, no beep and will not display anything on screen. as i said. i just got lucky when my PC starts up with the 2 sticks.>
System type: 64-bit OS

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).
