Did you just install new memory? Is this an older computer? Different computers can only access a certain size of ram, but without knowing what kind of computer you have we can't tell. Actually if you Google your make and model, plus memory you will find links to companies that supply memory and they will tell you how much memory and in what configration your computer can use.
