When you boot the computer, the boot screen should display "dual channel". Does it? Also, check your motherboard manual. You should have recieved one with that new computer.

No, they should both be in the same color slots, so they should both either be in the blue or in the yellow.

I have a dual-channel mobo, and my boot screen doesn't say anything about dual-channel.

hey, i didn't realize the other night when i was talking to you that you have the same mobo as me. the ram needs to be in the same color slots for this mobo, slots 1 and 3.
