I recently just switched out my power supply and reseated my ram but in the process I didn't plug in one of my sticks properly. When I booted up today I noticed my game was stuttering and looked towards my memory and realized I only had 4 gigs instead of the normal 8. Now when I plug in my second stick my computer boots for a few seconds then turns and repeats this. It boots up with 4.

Hello,

If moving the sticks around doesn't fix it.

Download and install Memtest64, to check your sticks for errors. Place the number "8" into the "Loops" box. Test each stick at least 8 loops. Remove all but one stick. Test all sticks, one by one, in each slot. Any stick with errors is bad.

Try resetting CMOS , could be a Memory Controller issue. Refer to Motherboard manual for procedure.

Or one of your Motherboard's RAM slots are failing, which could be down to slightly bent pins in the CPU socket for example.

I had this problem, try to see if they are fully pushed in, and if that doesn't work try switching the ram sticks around into the other previous ram stick's spot. Sorry if that's confusing.

To clarify, it has the stuttering on bootup, and shows 4gb even with the whole 8gb plugged in?
