Ram need to be installed in pairs. Windows XP only recognizes a max of 4GB ram 3.5 usable. Windows Vista 32bit only recognizes a max of 4GB ram as well as Windows 7 32bit. Vista/7 64bit can recognise a much larger amount of ram. Find out if your operating system is 32 or 64 bit and make sure you are using the right kind of ram for your system.

This board has a dual channel memory. To function correctly both channels must be identical otherwise , as you can witness, it chokes. To put it simply you must put either 2 identical sticks of memory or 4 - it can't run on 3.
Sorry as far as I know and experienced all 32 bit XP and Vista will only recognize up to 3,4 GB of ram and no more. whether its dual channel or not. You will have to go to a 64 bit O/S to use it. Even then there are limits some 64 bit O/S will only use 4 GB others more
That motherboard does not have a video circuit built-in, so the video sharing the system RAM does not make sense.
Have you checked the valid system memory configurations in your MSI manual pg 2-7 ?
Any chance that the bios is set for dual channel and you don't have
equal chip sizes in the dual slots? Example : In dual-channel mode,
equal size chips would go in slots 1 & 3 and in 2 & 4
Defective RAM is a possibility also.
Note1: Per MSI, all ram may not register correctly in windows unless 4 of the 2GB chips are used
