4x2Gb RAM in Dell Precision T1500, only seeing 4Gb

I have 4x2Gb DIMMs newly installed in my Dell Precision T1500, but the BIOS (and OS, Linux 64-bit) are only reporting 4Gb.

 

DIMMs are all identical:

They all work individually.

 

BIOS (v1.0.1) reports them as DDR3 SDRAM Dual Channel, 133x10

 

The only way to get 4Gb is 2x2Gb in DIMM1 and DIMM3 slots (blue and black), which doesn't make much sense to me. Any other configuration is either ignored or won't boot.

 

Any suggestions?

@johnlevon Thanks for contacting us today. I am sorry to hear you've been experiencing issues with the Dell Precision T1500.  It looks like the issue may be caused because of the system requiring a BIOS update. I would suggest checking Dell's site for the latest BIOS. Please let me know if this resolves the issue for you or not.
