    Default 890gx pro3

    Bios 1.30
    Phenom II X6 1090T
    patriot 2x4.00 gb of drr3 1600 psd38g1600kh
    gt240
    No overclocking.

    So,the problem is..
    In windows, it says "8.00 gb (4.00 gb usable)"

    Also,the 8gb shows up on the bios.
    but it only shows up as "single channel mode"

    So,that means the motherboard is only using 4 out of the 8 for some reason.

    Does any one have any ideal what could be preventing the other 4 gigs to be usable?

    or any steps i could do to weed out the problem?

    32bit operating systems are limited to 4GB memory. Best solution is using 64bit version of your OS.
    Another solution is enabling PAE. In windows, enabling PAE is not helpful because 32bit windows is intentionally limited to 4GB.
