You must use a 64bit operating system in order for your pc to recognize more than 3.2 gigs of RAM.  What operating system are you using?  How much memory IS being recognized? thanks.

    Sometimes there is an option in the BIOS.


    If there is none available, then try testing both sticks of RAM.


    Remove the RAM and place one stick in the first slot.  If your PC doesnt work that stick is bad.  Either way remove that stick and test the next one.  If they both work fine then test the slots themselves. If your motherboard supports one stick in the second slot then test both sticks in that slot.


    Sometimes different RAM does not play well with certain motherboards.  Is your RAM on the recommended or supported list for this motherboard?  You can find this information on the manufacturer's website.


    Hope that helps - wizdom

Scroll down to you come to the bold heading -
Standard Features - Specs
Go down the chart on the left side until you come to -
Interfaces Supported

1 SATA 3Gb/s interface (4 Serial-ATA connectors), 1 EIDE interface for optical drives

One EIDE interface. That is the Blue 40-pin connector, on the right side of the Ram Memory slots. (39-pin actually)

(Right next to the Black Floppy Drive 34-pin connector, and above the 4 SATA connectors)

It is an EIDE harddrive.

The answer is Yes.

Connect just the EIDE harddrive from the Compaq.
Make sure the correct jumper pins on the back of the harddrive, have a jumper cap on them to set them to Single;

OR,

The IDE harddrive model you have may Not use a jumper cap on any jumper pins, for some models of harddrives, to set the harddrive as Single.

Look up the harddrive jumper settings on the internet.
Start with the model number on the label of the harddrive.

Example; WD2500JB
Western Digital 250GB harddrive that is IDE. (EIDE)
Western Digital jumper settings for IDE (EIDE) harddrives,

You will need a SATA optical drive now.
BIOS Setup > Boot Options > Set the first boot device to CDROM.
Install Windows disk.

Use IDE harddrive, and IDE optical drive on the same flat ribbon IDE cable?
Can be done, but usually is a HEADACHE, and MAY not work.
BIOS looks to see what drives are connected. It looks for the drive with the Operating System on it. (Windows)

Now put a disk in the optical drive. Time has to be divided between the harddrive, and the optical drive.
IF it does work; when you are using the computer, and the optical drive you will know the real meaning of Slow.

Have a SATA optical drive?

Desktop shuts down with no video


This would seem to indicate that the RAM or motherboard does not work correctly with the settings that you set. There should be a jumper on the motherboard for BIOS reset. Also most newer systems will automatically detect a problem and reset to defaults after 3-5 failed boot attempts. The most likely reason for only seeing 4GB would either be that you have 32-bit version of Windows 7 or that one stick of RAM is bad. To see and use more than 4GB of RAM you need to have a 64 bit operating system.

It sounds like what you need to do is reset your bios back to factory settings. You can do this by doing something called Clearing your CMOS. To do this, look at your motherboard for a silver battery. Near it should be three pins perpendicular from the motherboard. On two of them should be something called a jumper. With the computer unplugged, move the jumper to the other two pins. Wait for 30 seconds then move it back. Plug the power back in and start it back up. Everything should be working properly. If you cannot find the three pins, just pull out the battery for a few hours with the computer unplugged from the wall. This will accomplish the same thing, it will just take longer.

if you are using a 32 bit operating system it will not recognize all of the memory in some instances or the mobo is not designed for more than 2 gb maximum check the mainboard (motherboard) website for specs on your model. sometimes you have to use 64 bit operating system to be able to get the full use of memory over 2 GB

How much memory can I install using windows vista 32 on a gigabyte ga-8vm800m. I know on Xp is only 2 Gig


Usually the limit is 3.12GB in any 32-bit Windows OS. In-order to achieve full 4GB recognition you should install a 64-bit version. Here you can read some more information.

Proper jumper & BIOS settings for XFX 750aSLI nForce motherboard


You will have to access the BIOS and disable the onboard graphics from there. Before you install your new card, boot the computer. As it is performing the POST, enter the BIOS (usually delete or F2 gets you in.) Once you have disabled the on board graphics, save your settings and exit. Then install your new card and attempt to boot the computer. If it will not boot, locate the CMOS jumper and activate it to reset back to default settings.

4gb on msi k8n neo-4 F


Hello pejegess,

If your OS is reading the 4Gb, it will be running the 4GB even if the bios is only seeing 3GB. You may just need to update the firmware on your motherboard but I suggest that you just leave it as is since the OS is recognizing the 4GB.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong

3> verify jumper select to correct memory type is set correctly

if the main board aint compatable with the memory you brought that will cause the same problem
