That is because of window's limitations. Since you only have a 32-bit operating system installed, windows can only physically see a little over 3 GB of memory. The only way you can see that other memory is by installing either XP or Vista 64-bit operating system. Oh and please give this solution a fixya rating; I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

How do I update on my Lenovo tablet when it says insufficient storage


Hi Debra

I don't use the Lenovo , I use an iPad
But

If they are using internal fixed memory and there is no way to connect an external SIMM memory chip. And you have reached the maximum memory of the devices configuration. Eg 16gb
Then the only way to free up space is to start removing Photos, Movies and APP's from your device. They all take up space in memory.

Check out the Upgrade capabilities below

Want to upgrade RAM for my Laptop, Lenovo G50-80. Can any one please suggest any Lenovo authorised Laptop service center in Dubai?


I am not aware of any in Dubai. You can upgrade up to 16Gb.
See link for details. It is not complicated to replace the RAM.

Three long beeps one long beep when trying to install ram


check your windows version to see if it is 32 bit or 64 bit, the 32 bit version will only recognize 1 4gb module. Also when installing memory upgrades it is always best to use matched pairs to avoid problems. Luckily memory prices are much better than they used to be.

My windows not shwoing whole RAM size


What you are seeing is correct. You have 4GB of physical RAM installed in the computer and it is being recognized properly by the BIOS. A 32-bit operating system can only address approximately 3.5GB of RAM. Vista may be rounding the number down to 3GB or if you are using on-board video, some of the RAM is being allocated for use by the video circuitry and is not reported as system memory. To see all of the installed RAM in your operaing system, you need to upgrade to a 64-bit version of Vista.

I upgraded the RAM on Lenovo X200 (745533A) from factory 2GB PC3-8500 to 4GB PC3-8500. Checked the BIOS and recognized the new 4GB memory. The trouble is, after upgrading the RAM, the WIFI stopped working...


Possibly the new sticks are defective. Try this: disable the wireless devices before removing the old memory. Install the new memory and reactivate the wireless devices. Another possibility: mislabeled memory. Can you check the new sticks in another machine? Check online and see if your machine has a BIOS update. If so, you may have to do it. Take all of the precautions when doing this. If youre not comfortable doing a BIOS update, get a service tech involved. Improperly done, youll render your machine inoperable.

OS not showing full RAM


Hi Shibbymusic, as with most Asus boards if not all! The MB
A8N-E does not show all of your 4GB memory. See this FAQ;
http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=A8N-E&os=17
Like you, I too have 4GB of memory.
Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe w/4GB memory only see's 3GB
The bios displays 3GB during boot up & so does windows XP 32bit.
You might want to think about upgrading to 64bit os.
Updating your bios should help as well.
(See A8N-E Bios version 1010); http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=A8N-E&SLanguage=en-us

Thank you for using fixya!
