How much memory slots in Lenovo G500 ?

My 2nd RAM slot on lenovo g500 is not reading new RAM. 

My story: i bought a lenovo g500 laptop from lenovo and it came with 4gb ram, i bought a new 8gb crucial ram and i wanted to upgrade it to 4+8=12gb.

1)I  inserted the 8gb ram in the 2nd slot but it does not read the new ram.

2) i swapped the ram in the slots now it read the 8gb ram but did not read the old 4gb ram.

 

Is this a prob with lenovo laptop. I have windows 7 ultimate and i3 procesor and 64bit OS.

Do you have a G500 or Ideapad 100?  Your title says Ideapad 100 BUT your post says G500?

 

If its a Ideapad 100 see below.  I think it has an error since it shows 2GB soldered and you are saying you have 4 GB soldered.

So do we have to activate the 2nd slot or does it work automatically. How much ram is the limit is it 16gb total? And 8gb per slot?
