I'm assuming you put that 3rd stick in the 4th slot. (Old sticks in 1 & 3) Try shifting that new 4GB to the 2nd slot. Keep the old sticks where they are.

Memory likes to be paired with identical sticks, and those pairs interlace A1 B1 A2 B2, where you'd have pair A and pair B. Without a pair, there is a preference to put the singleton in the lower numbered slot.

Personally, I do most of my hardware shopping at NewEgg and Amazon, buying where the price+shipping is less.
