Question about Biostar M6VLQ Motherboard
I have fitted 2 512m ram cards, only 504m ram shows up, I know the ram is OK . is there a way round this please?
It appears that one of your RAM modules may be incompatible with one another, or one module is faulty. Are the RAM modules from the same manufacturer and same specs/speed?
The motherboard may require interleaf memory and requires RAM to be installed in pairs in specific memory slots, check your manual.
To test for compatibility or fault, take both RAM modules out and insert one RAM module at a time in the memory slot 1. Boot up computer, if OK shut down and put the other RAM module in slot 1 and boot up again. This will determine the faulty RAM or incompatible module..
Your motherboard has onboard video chip and it uses some of your RAM for video memory, that is why it memory appears less that the normal RAM capacity.

It is not you. The Biostar uses an intergrated graphic card. In your manual on page 2-13 & 2-14. Advanced Chipset Features.
You can set the total amount of system memory for the graphics card to use. Currently you have the bios set to use 8Mb of system memory to run your graphics card. (A wee bit low). If you need the manual you can download it from Biostar at this link:
There is one other way to use all your system memory & that would be to buy a PCI video card, this would free up all your memory. Suggested PCI graphics card:
Good luck griff22_petm!
