I have a Biostar TA75MH2 and I've been having some weird issues. I insert two G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series. 4GB each but the motherboard can only read one. Bios says that the one on the first slot works and the one in the second slot is not available. However, when I go into CPU-Z it says that they both work and they're readable but its in single channel. Any tips on how to fix this?

If you have a 32-bit system, it can only read a maximum of 3.5 to 4 GB of total ram. What are your system specs? –  user183004 Dec 27 '12 at 21:44
It all depends on your system setup... My guess is, as the user above mentioned, that you are running on a 32bit OS... If this is the case, you can only use a max of 4gb of ram. –  Wescrock Dec 27 '12 at 22:36
