Problem with Mercury PI845GVM motherboard

Hi,

I have a mother board of mercury PI845GVM, whcih can support up to 2GB RAM.

Currently I have inserted a RAM of 512MB in one slot out of two, where other is empty.

But when the system boots its showing only 256MB as the RAM detected.

Can you answer the following questions:
1 Why the BIOS is reading RAM as 256MB instead of 512MB RAM?

2 If you see in the dxdiag we can see the RAM as 512MB in windows XP why is it 512MB in OS and 256MB when it boots up ?
Is there a diffrenence b/w the OS RAM And BIOS RAM ?
Can we make this both Simillar ?

3 Can you give me the information on the PI845GVM motherboard RAM Support ?

Fine ur problem if very simple as u installed 512 mb RAM on ur pc if at possible try to connect on to the other slot and restart the computer and check ur RAM capacity in ur os if it shows as same 256mb then ur have to change ur virtual memory settings i.e memory allocated to the video so configure ur virtual memory as per requirement then free up RAM memory ..

Steps for virtual memory configuration.

  1. Open System in Control Panel.
  2. On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.
  3. On the Advanced tab, under Virtual memory, click Change.
  4. Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file you want to change.
  5. Under Paging file size for selected drive, click Custom size, and type a new paging file size in megabytes in the Initial size (MB) or Maximum size (MB) box, and then click Set. If you decrease the size of either the initial or maximum page file settings, you must restart your computer to see the effects of those changes. Increases typically do not require a restart.

There are a lot of equivalent model available on other manufacturer websites. but the best way is to run belarc advisor and check the drivers needed. From there you can then download drivers and burn it in a cd.

Hope this helps.
