You're missing about 1281MB. That's close enough to 1280 to say you're missing a gig and a quarter (1024MB + 256MB = 1280.) Suggest you double check your RAM and make sure each module is seated correctly. You could also check each module individually in slot # 1 to make sure it's being recognized. It's possible that even a new stick can be defective.
BTW, how is your 8GB installed? 4 sticks of 2GB? 2 sticks of 4GB? Something else? Are they all brand new or did you just add additional memory to the original 2GB? Sometimes non-matched sticks can throw out some RAM errors. Not saying this is what's happening, just suggesting things to look at.
EDIT: Typed over your last reply. Second screenshot is showing 7551 installed. Again, not what it should be and changed from first screenshot. Something about your installed memory isn't being detected correctly.
