Computer only recognizes 2gb of RAM out of 8gb.

Is your memory not fully recognized? (Intel VX chipset Memory recognition)

Hey there,
I have 4 OCZ DDR3 2gb RAM cards installed on my ASUS P7P55D LE Motherboard with the Intel i5 Processor.
When booting, in the bios it detects all 8gb of RAM, but in windows it only detects 2gb. Bad RAM maybe? :?

install a 64bit Windows. there's plenty information about why it won't work with any 32bit OS.
If you email me include [WIMSBIOS] in the subject.

hmm... that might be it, I have 32bit xp, but I just discovered that 3DMark detected all 8gb, is it possible that the computer is using all of it just not detecting it? (it detects 1.99gb when I right-click My Computer). Thanks.
