Did you disable Memory Remap in your BIOS? (it must be enabled)
Reset the settings to your BIOS to default values
Is your BIOS detecting all the 8GB?

Uncheck Max mem from msconfig (msconfig>Boot>Advanced options)

well if you have windows 7 starter edition... it's limited to 2gb regardless of x64 or not (there's a hack to get rid of the limit)

Most probably by some "Auto system tuners" such as TuneUp etc

Glad you got it fixed
