A 32 bit OS will only see 3.2 to 3.5 gigs of memory total.
What MOBO do you have as the ram may need to be seated in a specific slot to work correctly.

Windows 7 32 or 64 bit?

Also like edge2022 said, you need to choose either the black sockets or yellow sockets on your motherboard for RAM. Both slots are the same, but in order for your computer to pick up both sticks you need to have the RAM in same color slots.
Hope that helps!

Do you mean that the problem is with the motherboard or with a stick of RAM. If the computer picked up 3GB when you were running in dual-channel configuration, the problem shouldn't be with the RAM.
i have the 64 bit and i put both sticks in yellow slots and it picked up 3 gb. i think one of the stiocks may be broken because i put one of the sticks on and it had trouble starting and when it finally loaded it showed 1 gb of ram. thx for the help
Just to check that the RAM is ok, click on Memtest Instructions in my sig and follow the steps in the article.
This might be OS related, can you try seeing how much RAM another 64-bit OS detects? You can try 64-bit Ubuntu: http://www.ubuntu.co...ubuntu/download
