It looks a little low - but two possiblilites... the motherboard's chipset does not support more than 3GB of ram or you have not configured your ram correctly in your BIOS setup.

Restart computer and press whichever key it asks you to so you can go to Setup or BIOS config.

Look in the memory section, advanced chip set section or if necessary just go through all the options until you see the map memory hole... this allows the BIOS to see more memory.

But I think you will find it is your chipset. You could try flashing the BIOS to the latest version --- but that's another story.

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

How to make geforce6100pm-m2 read both memory slots


make sure your memory meets these guide lines.
? 2 x 240-pin DDR2 DIMM socket support up to 16 GB*
? * (Due to the DRAM maximum size is 2GB at present, the memory maximum size we have tested is 4GB)
? Dual-channel DDR2 memory architecture
? Support DDR2 800/667/533/400 DDR2 SDRAM
Due to the operating system limitation, the actual memory size may be less than 4GB for the reservation for system usage under Windows?32-bit OS.
For Windows?64-bit OS with 64-bit CPU, there is no such limitation
which means win xp will only read 2gig and win vist/7 will read 4g so if you have 2x 2gig and only 1 is registering its working fine with win xp.

Acer systems are picky about the type of memory you use.
What is your RAM Speed on the old chips compaired to the new chip

You may have to reorder the same type of speed memory

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB


Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.


Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!

According to your description you have 4 memory slots and each memory slot can hold
DDR2 PC2-6400
DDR2 PC2-8500
DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 2GB per slot.
This board does not support DDR3.
I hope this helps your memory question.

Memory Issue


yeah you should upgrade. Windows xp 32bit only support up to 3gb memory. You should upgrade to 64bit.
And your specs? Yeah it can run 64 bit operating systems or if you like, use Windows Vista x86 or x64 with Service Pack 1.
