try memory test
Diagnosing memory problems on your computer

The usable memory may be less than the installed memory on Windows 7-based computers
For example, a 32-bit version of Windows 7 may report that there is only 3.5 GB of usable system memory on a computer that has 4 GB of memory installed.

1) open msconfig,
2) go to boot-advanced options,
3) tick maximum memory and enter 6144.
4) reboot

or just boot on one ram, shutdown, add the second ram, reboot, so on..

It could be that you have installed a 32bit version of windows
go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System and check your system type 32bit or 64bit

only 64 bit system can use more than 4 gigs

1. Power your computer off

2. Open your computer and count your ram cards (should be four slots for four cards)
You can have one to 16 GB of memory installed. (All memory cards have to be same size, one to four GB each.)

3. Recommend you put a 4 GB ram in each of the first two slots, then you should have 8 GB.

4. You can not have 6 GB of ram on this computer.

5. See chart below for allowable installs of ram memory cards.

part of ram goes to video. even 8 gb of ram installed won't show exactly 8 gb of ram, it'll show you 6.97 or 7. and 64 or 32 bit OS does matter. I have HP dv6 6b01er, but amd on board.

sounds like your run a system on 32 bits....

try some windows with 64 bits, this will help you to get more then 3.5 GB RAM

memory tests only when bluescreens appers with MEMORY_ERROR or similar exception...
