Re: ram memory

The problem may be that your new memory is not compatable with the current memory and board, the easiest way is to remove your memory and just install the new memory and try all slots, if you get no boot then you know the memory is not compatable.

Hi i just built a new PC with 2 x 2gig memory now under computer properties it says 4 gig installed but only 2.99 gig useable and the new motherboard will support upto 16 gig. Using Windows 7 Ultimate...

Looks like one of the 2gb mem card you bought and installed is defective.
Check each one and clean the gold terminals using a pencil rubber eraer, clean it an install it again, move it to side to side just to perfectly fit the contacts.
If both mem card is working the problem would be the memory socket terminal, either it is dirty or the pin connector is burned.
If one is not working, return the mem card and have them replace it.

Hope FixYa helps you out!

Hp xw9300 workstation bios shows 4gb of installed ram but the system properties when the pc is booted up only show 2gb of ram. Whats the fix for this?

If you running a 32 bit version Operating system it does happen. since there's a limit for 32 bit operation though the mother board can handle 4gb.
other common cases: 1 of the sticks are bad. try to reseat the memory sticks to isolate which ram is not detected.thanks

Trying to upgrade RAM - won't boot after new RAM installed

Install the RAM on memory slot and Switch on your system and go to BIOS settings. There you can check whether your RAM is working properly or not. If it shows no memory installed then the RAM Chip may be damaged.
