Rest of RAM not shown?

Hi people, Well I had some RAM and it shown ONLY 2GB OF RAM. So went out and BOUGHT new RAM 4GB put it in then all i saw was 2GB! After doin' a bit of research I knew that the old RAM had 4GB (I got my computer tweaked so I didnt know) Is there a way to make this show or anything?

Did you alter the configuration in MSCONFIG > Boot > Advance?
If so, uncheck "Number of processors" and "Maximum Memory" those checkboxes should be unchecked.

Yes they are unchecked. And the comp. is still not reconizing it.

Is it one 4 gig module? If so does your motherboard support 4 gig modules per slot? Does it show up correctly in the BIOS?

Also try one stick at a time in your main slot. RAM does come bad sometimes. If they all show up by themselves try switching the order you previously had them in. I have heard of this causing this issue before. What kind of RAM is it?
