More then 2 Gb RAM on Gigabyte's GA-8I945PL-G ?

My board is GA-8I945PL-G (have it since 2006 or so)At the shop and on the box of it said it supports DDRII 667 (only found out later so I bought first 1 Gb 667 (Kingmax) which worked just fine, didn't even notice that the board said online it supports 533 DDR II until later.
After a year I got another 1 Gb 667, also Kingmax (to ensure dual channel) and this worked too.But now I'd like some more RAM, initially I have noticed people whit this board mentioning in their specs having 3 or 4 Gb so I thought I was good to go. But checking online on Gigabyte's site I found the board only 2 Gb ..
My question is: can it support more, maybe with bios tweaks or such? I didn't try yet, and haven't any RAM laying around for testing, but i would definitely buy some if it can work. I could compromise one restart at the beginning of every first computer startup (if it then works without further restarts until shutdown - i somewhere understood this happen but am not sure).
The complete specs now are: GA-8I945PL-G (ver. F8); Intel Pentium D 915 (2.8 GHz/ 2x2Mb); 1+1 Gb 667 DDRII on dual (kingmax); Saphire Ati Radeon HD2600 Pro 512 DDR2; WD SATAII 250Gb + Maxtor ATA 80 Gb drives; Asus ATA CD/DVD R-W

    What is "Windows XPS"? (assuming it's not Windows XP but a software or such).

    Are you saying that it could or it definitely should work?

    PS. I intend to have Windows 7 and Linux on it, not at all Windows XP.

My Gigabyte 8i945pl-g motherboard has stopped connecting to the SATA drives. I updated to F8 bios and have tried all the bios settings for PATA/SATA connection. The drives operate OK in another computer....


Hi thanks for your question.
I would suggest to-
1. Set BIOS to default. 2. Check the cable that drive is connected with (use know good cable) 3. Try and use different socket on motherboard (if you have one)
If all of this fails I'm afraid this may mean that your motherboard has developed a fault. Best of luck!

2 GB DDR2 on Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H Motherboard


Hello

That's normal condition. Probably your RAM shares it's capacity with internal video card (which uses the whole 256MB)

More info can be found on Wikipedia:

Can Gigabyte GA-8I945PLGE-RH supports 4gb ram?


Sorry, but at the moment you can't do that. This is because the BIOS is programmed to manage only 2GB memory. I searched for BIOS upgrade to resolve the memory issue but with no luck. At the moment your motherboard supports only 2 GB RAM.

Yes, this mothereboard can actually supports up to 4GIG of RAM , so probably the problem lies on the RAM that you have, If you're using 2 or more piece or ram to this motherboard make sure they are the same brand because sometimes you will have problem like this if the memory are not the same brand...this is the link for the complete specs of the motherboard http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-Gigabyte-Gigabyte-GA-945P-S3-945-Core-2-Extreme-Core-2-Duo-1066FSB-LGA775-DDR2-ATX-Motherboard-w-Audio-Gigab
