Vista & RAM memory
Hi,

I bought 4 Gb RAM DDR 2 King max memory.

Vista (Bussines edition) does not recognize it and show me 3,25 GB.

I am sure that comp is ok because during start BIOS showing 4.194.304
bytes.

Can you help me and tell me how to fix this problem.

Thanks to all.

Mike

Check out "Re: 4gb RAM not showing up" by Rock over in the Vista.General
group...thereis nothing wring with your PC. Just the way 32-bit Vista is
reporting it.

Re: Vista & RAM memory
Is it not that 3.25 GB is 4Gb? its maybe something to do with 1KB = 8Kb and
such? maybe I am completely wrong though!

No, it's not like hard drive space where the OS uses 1024^3 = 1 GB and
manufacturers use 1000^3 = 1 GB

RE: Vista & RAM memory
this worked on my DFI NfD-4

I am not an expert ( but I read many posts & then tried this )
& the issues was fixed 1st try... !! : ' )
enter Bios
Advance chipset features
memory hole for PCI MMIO
enable feature!
this feature is to remap to address above 4G of ram
save settings & exist
its all there now! from 3070 to 4094!

it looks like to me that bios on many motherboards is set to
a default under 4 gig setting (from the old days) last year....
