Question about MSI P7N Diamond Core 2 Quad/ Nforce 780i SLI/ FSB 1333/ RAID/ 3-Way SLI/ A&2GbE 7510010 Motherboard
I just bought an MSI P7N platinum mother board, with a quad core 2 processor. My video card is nividia 1gb( not sli), the ram is 8gb. My problem is that in the CMOS setup the 8gb is displayed but when i checked it in the windows my computer properties, its only 3gb... i tried contacting the dealer but they only answered that the ram is being shared by the video card? ?????
i just don't really get it? My video card memory is 1 gb why does it have to share the memory form the ram? Your answer will be of great help... thank you in advance
If you are using windows 32 system,it will only detect 3gb.If you want to use all the 8gb you have to
install windows 64 operating system.
All the best.

If you are using xp your system will only allow 4gb, vista will allow up to 8 gb not sure what you are using

That motherboard does not have a video circuit built-in, so the video sharing the system RAM does not make sense.
Have you checked the valid system memory configurations in your MSI manual pg 2-7 ?
Any chance that the bios is set for dual channel and you don't have equal chip sizes in the dual slots? Example : In dual-channel mode, equal size chips would go in slots 1 & 3 and in 2 & 4
Defective RAM is a possibility also.
Note1: Per MSI, all ram may not register correctly in windows unless 4 of the 2GB chips are used
