I bought a 8GB RAM (4GBx2) from Amazon a week ago and tried to install it a few moments ago. I boot up the computer to check my new RAM and make sure it's working and it only says I have 3GB of RAM. I tried again by putting in one 4GB and the 1GB RAM that cam with the laptop; now I had 2GB of RAM. I tried putting in the old RAM (1GBx2) that came with the laptop; I have the same 2GB I started with. I am so confused. I don't understand why it won't recognize it. I'll post some screenshots of what happened all 3 times when I edit the post.



Pictures wouldn't post so here are the links; will take me a few moments to get them all.


With 4GB and 4GB installed





With 4GB and 1GB
