    Well, what:

    Version of Windows is this? (Some versions of Windows will only use 4 GB MAX)
    What motherboard is this? (some motherboards will not use more than $ GB MAX or 8 GB Max)
    Is the RAM compatible with the motherboard? (Probably is)
    IS the RAM known good and tested so on another machine?

    Does the BIOS report 12GB?
