Question about EPoX (EP-4SGM8I) Motherboard
Dear FixYa: I have enjoyed my EPoX EP8K7A+ motherboard for several years. I have been using 512 Mb of RAM until a few days ago, when I attempted to upgrade my memory , using two 512Mb, PC2100 DDE 266MHz DIMMS. For some reason, only the first 512 Mb is being recognized during the POST (it indicates 524288K). While the system analysis program I used (Belarc Advisor) sees both DIMMS ("Slot 'BANK_0' has 512 MB; Slot 'BANK_1' has 512 MB"), it states that I have only "512 Megabytes Installed Memory." Is there some BIOS or jumper setting that I should change to accommodate this hardware change? Thank You for your assistance!
The first thing i would suggest it so make sure you have the latest Flash Bios installed on your motherboard.
Just for giggles you could try to reverse the dimms just to make sure one of them isnt bad.
Another thing to try is to take a qtip with alcohol, unplug the computer and attempt to clean the contacts that house the dimm. If it has been in use for years there may be dust buildup.
