Are all the sticks the same Brand & Speed ?

Is there anything in the Bios setup about Max Memory ?

Found solution!!!! It is really working,

I HOPE IT WILL HELP SOMEONE ELSE WITH THE SAME PROBLEM. !
I LOOKED IN THE MOTHERBOARD`S BOOK AND IT WAS SAYING TO UNPLUG THE POWER COARD AND REMOVE THE VIDEO CARD AFTER THAT , AND ALL THE MEMORY, AND AFTER THAT TO REINSTALL ALL THE MEMORY BACK !
I DID THAT AND IT IS WORKING ...
THE BOOK SAYS TO DO IT IN THIS WAY , FOR THE MOTHERBOARD TO RESET THE COUNTS AND THE VIDEO SPACE ALLOWED TO VIDEO CARD .. IN MY CASE.


conclusion...it did WORKED!!!
