Does the bios consistently report 8GB? Incompatible memory can produce
intermittent behavior.

Are you sure the video driver is honoring the 64MB setting in the bios?
Perhaps it's claiming 2GB?

Also, the kernel can be configured with various possible memory
topologies--it may be possible that the ones on the live cd don't see it
all. Why not actually build a kernel native for your cpu and chipset and
see what it finds when it boots.
