Resmon should show you where the RAM is going (reserved by BIOS, etc).

The 64bit Windows should be reporting a 6gb total when looking in the system properties or when running the free System Info for Windows(SIW) program. SIW | System Information for Windows by Gabriel Topala

The first there would rearranging the dimms between the correct slots when removing to reseat them since apparently memtest was only testing two out of the three 2gb dimms if 2gb in size with one possibly isn't seated down fully in the slot. You should actually feel the locking tabs go into place when reseating them.

Even on a new build you have to take an extra minute to recheck each item as you go along. That and watching the post screen at powering up should be displaying the total amount of memory installed when totaled during the initial tests there.

Are you sure you put them in slot 1, 3, 5?
You only would have to take out the dimm from slot 2 and put it into slot 5.

If you give us the name and type of motherboard we can find out wich are nr 1, 3, 5 and what color they are.

Better to fill out your systems specs anyway.

Glad to hear the news!

At least now you will know to go over the manual for any board when installing memory and didn't run into any real hardware issues.
