Question about Computers & Internet
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
