Hello :))

Ok gonna confuse myself explaining this but here goes....and good luck ;)

I just recently updated from 32bit xp to 64bit 8.1.But my comp isnt using all my memory.

Like the title says I have 8gig ram(4x2) but when I go into cpu-z its recognizing my 4 sticks but only using 1024 of each sticks memory.

my basic specs are:
proc:Intel core 2 quad 9550

mobo:asus p5q pro

gfx;asus 7870

my cpuz HTML report:file:///C:/Users/gimpe_000/Desktop/NEILPC.html

any help would be great cheers :)
