DH55TC not supporting RAM above 8GB

I am having a Intel DH55TC motherboard with an i3 processor and WIndows 7 (64bit) Ultimate on my machine. Currently, I am having 8 GB of RAM on my board and it's working perfectly fine.


Now, due to some new requirements, I want to increase my RAM to 12 GB by adding one more 4GB module. After inserting the new RAM making a total of 12 GB, the BIOS is detecting 12GB of RAM but the OS boots up very slowly...taking around 10-15 mins and then it also runs very slow. The moment I reduce the total RAM to anything less than or equal to 8GB, things start running smoothly.


Can anyone please guide me - what should I do next?
