4gb ram in foxconn n15235

Does the Foxconn N15235 support 4gb of ram?

I recently brought 2x 2gb ram sticks, my computer is only reading a total of 2gb when they're both in, and when i put them in separately they each only read as 1gb sticks.

are my PCI slots only able to read 1gb of ram? or are my ram sticks faulty?

thanks for any help

    I have the same problem but I put two 1gb ram sticks in there and my computer is reading 1 gb. When I put only one 1gb stick in there my computer reading 500 MB.
    I thought DDR2 Mainboards have a minimum of 2 gb.
    In my Mainboard are only 2 slots. I have the Foxconn N15235 too.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

Hello Jobedy

Everything I found pointed to this board being installed in a Packard Bell computer. One listing indicated the board supported up to 2GB of RAM. So, apparently, 4GB won't run on this system.

Your RAM DIMMs are fine. They're reading 1GB ea when inserted because that is the maximum supported per DIMM slot.

So, in the end, the issue is the limitation w/ your motherboard.


SOME HELPFUL INFORMATION:
When you're trying to find info or support on parts installed in an OEM computer (like a Packard Bell), you'll usually have much better luck searching or requesting support using the computer model no. in addition to the (for example) motherboard model no.

The reason is, (w/ respect to motherboards), most are special made by the original manufactuer for the computer manufacturer. They aren't usually going to be "off-the-shelf" motherboards for which documentation and support will be made readily available to the public.

Having the model no. of both the major assembly (computer) **and** the subassembly (motherboard) is the best combination to strike. :)

    Hopefully that is the case. :)

I would say that each bank is only capable of reading 1 gb of ram.

ONN N15235 motherboard, which is a 775 socket. I am currently running a Pentium E2160 on its but its pretty slow so I bought an E5400 to replace it. When I changed the CPU over and started up my computer...


The LGA 775 processor socket doesn't matter, calderwooddu.

It's up to the motherboard chipset, and the BIOS program, and version, of what that Foxconn N15235 will support. I would go back to the Pentium Dual Core E2160, use CPU-Z from CPUID.com, (Free), and see what the motherboard chipset is, first.

(Motherboard chipset: The Northbridge, and Southbridge chips. Chip is slang for I.C. Integrated Circuit)

The Northbridge chip is what determines what Processors are supported.

1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northbridge_%28computing%29


Since the E2160 is built upon the 65nm technology, and the E5400 is built upon the 45nm technology, the Northbridge chip of the Foxconn N15235 may not support the E5400.

With the technology change are also Instruction Set changes. Plus other parameter changes. The BIOS program, and version on the Foxconn N15235 may not support these, either. Sorry to be a bummer.

Not a solution per se, Yet.

Need to know what computer this Foxconn mobo is out of. (MOtherBOard)
OR, if you get the computer operational again, let's use CPU-Z to see what the motherboard chipset is.
Need help in downloading, and/or installing CPU-Z, post in a Comment.
