Question about Computers & Internet
Mmm thats something hard to figoure out... memory can be failing and it does not matter that you can dettect it one by one... so with that info is impossible to know whats happening... what I can tell you is that if you are running windows XP... you will waste 4 GB cuz XP can only manage 4 giga in good shape... the rest will not be much usefull...
for now try this and if it does not work come back with more info please...
1. Just connect only the basics... motherboard, cpu, vga adapter and power supply, nothing else.
2. Make sure the BIOS config is OK, read the manual to find any missing pieces on that matter. Check the jumpers part very carefuly... Your motherboard manual will tell you about RAM configuration posibilities and perfect matches.
3. Put ONE DIMM in the first slot, if it works turn off and try that same dimm in all slots... do that with all dimms and you will know if all dimms are at least booting and all slots are working at least to boot (which does not means everything is perfect) Motherboards can and will fail "whenever they want"...
if something fails you clearly have some kind of hardware problem either compatibility or unknown failure.
4. If every piece is working just install 2 GB and boot... then the 3rd and well... while you can.
Finally if you succeeded in every point before and you still have problems... its likely you have a harware issue...

If you are using windows 32 bit o/s it can only see between 3 & 3.5 gig no matter how much you put in, vista 64 bit o/s can see more.
check that the memory is the same all ECC or not
do not mix them.
if they are all the same ,put them in then bootup and go into the bios then exit save changes (none done),
it may be ok then.
