Question about Asrock ALiveNF6G-VSTA (MB-ALVNF6G) Motherboard
I bought 2 Kingston DDR2 667Mhz PC25300 Dimms 1GB each.
I installed them in my ASRock 775Dual-880Pro Mainboard and the Bios recognizes them as 512MB each.The same thing happens in WinXP.What can I do?
P.S. I ran the Sisoft Sandra 2009 Dignostic Program and it found that I have 2 Dimms of 1GB each!
Before those two modules I used a Super Talent DDR2 PC5300 1GB wich was ok.
Then I bought one of the pair of Kingston and tried it with the Super Talent.The result was that the Bios said I had two modules, one with 1Gb (the Super Talent Module) and the other with 512Mb (the Kingston module). I thought that this was because the brand was not the same, so i bought a second Kingston. But when I put the two Kingstons together the Bios recognized them as 512Mb each as I said before.
I also tried installing one Kingston at a time, with the same result: Total memory=512Mb
I also removed the CMOS batt waited for about 5 minutes and reinstalled with no difference. The only thing left to do is update the BIOS but i am a little affraid I might cause a permanent problem
I think you are right, you have to update your BIOS, or try to change your Kingston to Super Talent or other compatible with your motherboard ram. Good luck!
