Your BIOS should note to you at POST, but you can download CPU-Z to find out.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.

Any DDR RAM can be used in dual-channel as long as both sticks are the same size, speeds and preferably same manufacturer/type.

does this only happen if the RAM is in the different slots?
if not:
is the monitor cable plugged in correctly?
is the video card seated correctly?

if so:
is the RAM pushed in all the way?
