Question about QDI Group QDI Advance 6T Motherboard

1 Answer

Memory I have recently put some more memory in to my system an extra 512mb along side the 256 which was originally in. When I restarted the computer & checked the system it only showed 504 mb I was expecting to see 760 taking into account the 8mb for on board graphics. I then removed the original 256 card leaving the new 512 in & started up again checked the system & it only showed 248mb. The supplier of the 512 card says this is 64x4 & this mother board only supports 32x8 that is my problem. what does this mean & is this correct

It means the most your motherboard will support per slot is a 256 RAM. Also, on older systems, some RAMs are not compatible with others.

Memory confusion different readings

It sounds like something isnt working right, what operating system are you using, Vista? I would take out the original 512 and see what it says after, often ram isnt compatible if it is too different in size and speeds. Also, if your motherboard supports dual channel ram and you have the extra 512 chip it wont run in dual channel mode, you would run better with just the 2 chips then the added 512 chip.

Added memory but one memory card (Original) not recognised

OK, according to your RAM does need to be installed in matched pairs.

Here is a link for your computer information:

If you get another 512MB module and install both pair, it should work well.

If you only have 256MB ram then you will run into problems as XP needs at least 512MB if not more as a preload buffer
I have overcome this by having 2 XP disks available when cannot find file on 1 I put in the other exchanging as needed
Have done this on 3 computers
1 was only a p266 with 256 ram and 40 gb hard drive
Give it a try

Memory count problems

Take out the 512mb and leave in the 256mb and 128mb and see what happens. Switch the memory around to other slots. It may be the speed of the chips. They should all be the same.
