system wont boot with 8GB ram

hi all!
I'm trying to upgrade my Ram and have run into a brick wall! currently i have 2x 2GB Hynix strontium installed, I try and install the other 2x 2GB sticks in and system dead!
powers up, no POST or beep codes and monitor doesn't even bother powering up!

as far as i know i have the latest bios from gigabyte.
all DDR2 6400, all same brand sticks.. Gigabyte EP41-ud3l bios F4
so any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
*UPDATE*
updated to F6 bios from Gbyte, system powers up, DOES NOT recognise extra 4GB tho..

check your BIOS, that's detect 8GB when you added 4GB more.

yes im running a 64bit system, problem occurs at power on, bios detects only 4GB ram, then randomly reboots in BIOS or when win7 is booting.. starting to think Mobo is farked
