If less RAM than installed is showing up in Windows, start by checking how much RAM is showing in the BIOS/UEFI. 

 

If the BIOS is showing only 4gb also, then first step would be to try re-seating your RAM (i.e. remove and reinstall it). 

 

Also check your motherboard manual to make sure you're installing the RAM in the correct slots for your board. If you have 4 slots, most boards will probably recommend the RAM be installed in the slot furthest from the CPU, and the slot second slot away from the CPU. Sorry if this sounds confusing, but your motherboard manual will clarify the details. 

 

Regarding the speed, some CPU models and motherboard chipsets don't support XMP / DOCP (higher RAM speeds). So confirming the speed supported via both the CPU vendors website (Intel or AMD), and the motherboard vendors website. For example, some Intel CPU's on certain chipsets will not support RAM speeds above 2666mhz. So attempting to enter higher speeds may be causing them to revert to default speeds (2133). If you can share your motherboard, CPU and RAM details, we will be able to help confirm the details for you if you're not sure.
