Check if the memory read on windows is capped or not.
If you don't know how to do it, press windows + R , then type "msconfig"

you will find this menu :


select "advanced option", then uncheck the maximum memory

TIA!
Check your MB's manual, RAM should most probably be in A2 and B2 slots but you have them in A1 and B1.
