Hello and thank you for reading this post, I appreciate your time.
So, what's the problem?
Okay, I've been waiting for Seagate to send my new HDD through the post and it arrived this morning. I added it to my computer along with some RAM I have and installed the OS. The RAM has been sitting on my wooden shelf for quite a while now, maybe a month or so. When it came to adding it to the computer I added 4GB and the computer read it fine, I then added another 4GB into the rear slot, the computer didn't read it at all so I moved it into another slot. This time the computer read it and said 8.00GB (3.92GB usable). I thought this was a little odd so I consulted my motherboard manual. The manual told me where to place them and I did as it said and powered the computer hoping for the issue to be resolved, this however, was not the case it still said: 8.00GB (3.92GB usable).
What OS are you using?
I am running Windows 7 64-Bit. (Fresh Install)
Has this happened before?
No, when I had the computer running before the HDD went dead previously it just said 8.00GB and there was no problem, all of a sudden after a fresh OS install this happened
I hope someone can please help me, thank you.
