Bus speed of mother board. No point having 4Gb in if 3Gb is all it will handle.

The other possiblity is the extra 1Gb is damaged and it is still booting up

How much maximum ram size can i use?


If you are running a 32bit OS the max that will work, no mater how much you add, is around 3.8GBs. Memory in pairs is best, 1gb x2 or 2gb x 2, for instance. If you have a 64bit system OS it will use more. Your hardware/software will dictate the amount the machine will use efficiently

Blue screen with 4gb, OK with 3gb of RAM on 6720s laptop Using windows 7 (32 bit) there are 2x slots, but the top slot seems only capable of recognising 1gb of RAM without giving the blue screen at startup...


A 32bit OS and Processor is able to Identify and work with upto 3GB of memory.
That may be the cause of the issue
Even if any computer has more then 3gb of ram it will showup only upto 3gb.
if you install 4gb or more then also it will not show up.

.........and second reason, may the ram that you are using are not identical or one of them is not working properly.
Check the specifications of the ram and also try using one a time.

Thanks and Regards

A75 not recognizing all of the memory


How much of the memory is not being recognized out of the total RAM?
Most laptop video cards do not have built-in RAM and part of the main memory is used for video RAM. Depending upon the video chip, it could grab 256Mb or more RAM for video.
If the RAM is equal to the extra RAM module being installed, then the problem could be incompatible RAM module or a faulty memory expansion slot.
Try and use RAM with the same speed and from the same manufacturer.

I want to upgrade my sony vaio VGN-AX570G to 4GB of RAM. I have been able to upgrade to 3GB but I want to use 4GB. Can anyone figure out my solution?


Hello!
I've checked the Sony website and it says the maximum amount of RAM you can put in the VGN-AX570G is 2GB.

I'm not sure why you are able to have 3GB, but it may be a fluke. It may be showing the memory but is not able to actually use the full 3GB.

Good luck! Make sure to rate any solutions you get!

MSI VR321 WITH 3GB


Kind of like with hard drives the amount shown is never the exactly full amount cause when it comes to hard drive space some of it is taken up for creating the partition.

When it comes to memory some of it is taken up for the system to run, boot up, etc. So as long as its close then everything is fine.

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB


Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.


Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!
