Question about MSI KT4AV-L Motherboard
I recently got 3 1Gb sticks of Kingston-recommended non-ecc 266Mhz RAM for my MSI KT4V mainboard. According to MSI, 266 Mhz RAM is the only type that can max out the supposed 3Gb that the KT4V can use. When I installed all three gigs of RAM, the startup would go until just after the point when the BIOS could be entered, then the screen goes black with two red letters placed haphazardly on the screen. When I take out one gig stick it will startup normally, and will even run normally with 2.5Gb. I think I have the latest (Award)BIOS and chipset drivers, so I am wondering if I can adjust my BIOS settings to make all 3 gigs work.
What Operating System and revision are you running?
I don't believe that XP 32bit (not sure about 64) will recognize 3GB of RAM, but Vista will as long as your MoBo (Mother Board) supports it or possibly even more than.
My Asus MoBo will utilize 4GB but Vista 32bit will only utilize 3.48GB or so, and Vista 64bit will take up to 8GB if the MoBo will.
Let us know what O.S. you're running?
