RAM and Motherboard Fail

by Jameson123455 - 7/11/13 11:00 AM

So i've been having 3 consair 1gb(133mhz) RAMs and i recently added a Balistix 4gb (1600mh) ram to my pc but it only runs 2gb so in Control panel/system and security/system it shows only 5gb.
My motherboard model is ASUS P6T SE,my cpu is Intel core i7
In cpuz it apears 7gb memory.
Tried all slots and this is what i foud the most beneficial
2 1gb rams in slots A1,A2,1 in Slot B1 and the 4gb one in slot C1 if you dont know what im talking see manual.It is not slot or socket problem i literaly tried EVERYTHING.
Bios is updated with all the updates and utilities of Motherboard founded in relation to motherboard and not only and installed them all from Asus website.
There is no, memory remapping option in my Bios neither is Agp option for GPU memory usage.
I've been searching Bios for 2 days streight and there is nothing that can relate to this problem not even voltage,overclocking,etc.
My advanced Bios settings are really pure and as the above there is nothing in relation to Ram.
There are bunch of Cpu settings but i haven't messed with those yet.
It is not typical Bios menu it is wierd i can't even see RAM total memory.
System config box for certain amount of ram usage is unchecked.
So pretty much i covered everything sry but this site doesnt let my upload pics to show you i added details if you want anything in specific i can give in no time thanks.
any help with that stupid bios would be appreciated thanks
