Finding a few possible solutions, make sure the ram sticks are in slots 2&4 or 1&3 (preferably 2&4)
If that's done this thread has instructions to run ms config and check configuration stuff, and the post under it has instructions to check a setting in bios https://superuser.com/questions/56157/why-is-all-my-extra-ram-marked-as-hardware-reserved-in-windows-7
