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.

2*2GB (4GB) ddr2 shows up as 2*1GB ddr2 (2GB)


It could be a problem if you are running a 32 bit operating system. I know that there is a limit of around 2gb on any 32bit windows install. this can be fixed by installing a 64bit version, IF your hardware supports it. You would need a 64bit cpu to install 64bit windows. If this is not the reason you are having the problem, the only other reason that would make sense would be that your motherboard doesnt support more than 1gb of ram per DIMM hence it shows that two are insalled but can only use one gb each. This i think is the more logical answer because I think the limit on GB for win 32bit was more like 3gb. good luck

I have a toshiba satellite A135-S4467 laptop, using two memory slots, totaling 1G. I've bought a Kingston ValueRAM - 2GB PC2-6400 DDR2 Laptop Memory Module. What is the best way to install my new 2G...


Hi, Yes, it would be best to take the old RAM out. I am assuming that this is 1 stick totalling 2GB. Optimally it would be good to have 2 x 1GB modules totaling 2GB, so they could work together. Otherwise, yes, just remove the the old ram and install the new module. If you are running a 32bit operating system, 3GB is all the system can use anyway. Hope this helps!

Have an EVGA nForce 680i. Bought 2x 2 GB 6400 800Mhz of ram to replace 2x 1 GB sticks. However when I start up the system it only reads that I have 2874 MB of RAM. So I figured maybe one of the sticks is...


Hi.

The reason its only seeing just under 3GB of memory is no doubt because you are using a 32BIT operating system (probably XP).
If you were to install Win 7 (X32) or a 64BIT operating system the computer would see all 4GB of RAM you have installed.

Its nothing to worry about though as the computer will work just fine. If you were to check in the BIOS you would see all 4GB of memory is there and see by the BIOS.

Ram Installation more than 3G ex: (4G or 5G) will read 3.25 G How? i am using 2 units of KVR800D2N6/2G pulse 1G original>


Probably your Operating System is a 32bit. 32bit OS can only read up to 3GB of RAM regardless of the capacity of RAM you install. For example you installed 2pcs of 2GB RAM, that makes it 4GB in total, 32bit OS will only recognize 3GB. upgrade your OS to a 64bit OS and you can upgrade your RAM up to 8GB depending on how much your motherboard can handle.

Installed 4 G of RAM. Installed Windows 7. Only 3 G RAM Usable


Hi,
To recognize more than 3GB of RAM you will need a 64 bit version of the operating system. If you install Windows 7 32 bit (normal for most users) you will only see 3.
You should have both versions of Windows 7 (32bit and 64 bit) on your installation disk. However you will need a 64 bit capable processor to install it. Otherwise 3GB of RAM for a 32 bit operating system is more than enough.

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

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Thank you for using fixya!
