Windows 7: Windows 7 won't recognize all my ram

Your motherboard can only support 4GB of RAM.

From your System Specs, you have 4 2GB RAM modules, your motherboard can only support 4GB RAM however.

If you want more RAM, then you will need to buy a new motherboard.

That is completely normal, the usable RAM will be 3.0 to 3.5; 3.5 with my system, due to hardware addressing and memory mapping.
