My System Specs

Default 3x2GB running as Single channel?

I am using Windows 7 64 bit.

I noticed in "System" Windows is only reading 2GB of installed memory. But I have 3x2GB of RAM Speccy reads that I have 6GB of Memory but that it is running in single channel. When I inspect it in Speccy it tells me I have 1.99GB of Physical Memory and 3.98GB of virtual??

What has happened and how do I fix it? I have not changed any hardware or had any problems recently I know windows was reading 6GB like 3 days ago because I had seen it then.

Thanks for any help.
