Guys i need some help here and i think the problem just happened a couple of days ago..

Now looking at these pics you can almost guess what's wrong right?

yea, as you see on the pics it show that i have 4 Gb ram and in CPU-Z it show that i have DUAL channel, but I'm supposed to have triple channel 6gb.. (3 ram sticks with 2gb each)

Ram is:

OSZ 6GB Ram Tripple-Channel 1333Mhz

Rest of system:


XfX GTX285 Black Edition
Intel Core i7-920 @ 2.8Ghz
Gigabyte GA-EX58-DS4
Corsair 750W PSU
Windows 7 64-bit

 

So, my problem is that my pc says that im using 4Gb Dual Channel

and im supposed to have 6Gb Triple Channel

 

Halp!

and P.S. before you guys come with comment such as check BIOS or something, please explain more detailed where in BIOS which section and all that, because I'm not an expert in that BIOS!

Try taking all 3 sticks of memory out and put them back in firm and tight. You can also try and reset the motherboard Bios CMOS. Remove the motherboard battery for 5 minutes and put it back in. Load the defaults in the Bios. One of those sticks might be bad or the motherboard might have a bad memory slot.

Thanks Jared, clearing CMOS and removing the battery solved it.
