Is it possible to have memmory more than 3,00 GB?

I have purchased a 4GB kit (2X2GB) but the motherboard detects only 3GB.

    the problem is that BIOS detects only 3GB not the operating system. I have updated the bios but didn't work. Do you know about hidden settings of the bios? How can I enter into these settings?

First you need to update to the latest bios from asus http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asus . after you have updated go to your system bios. select the advanced tab, then select chipset then set the northbridge memory remap to enable. this will fix your problem. any questions email me

The problem is that you are running a 32bit operating system. Due to the 32bit addressing, it can't address more than 3gb of memory. The only solution would be to use a 64bit operating system. Unless you are using very intensive programs though, you shouldn't need more than the 3gbs of memory your computer recognizes. If you must use the 4gbs of memory you can buy this

These are the specs, but I don't see 64 Bits support. Hence it must be running 32 bit and Windows 32 Bit has a 3GB limitation. Furthermore, even if it did recognize it. Your applications must be written to utilize more RAM. For instance I have 16GB and never seen the usage go more 3GB.

Can i put 2x2gb ram in k9vgm-v motherboard


It should specs say:
• Supports Dual DDR II 533/667/800
- 2 DDRII DIMMs (240pin / 1.8V)
- Supports a maximum memory size up to 2GB.
Most systems will pick up the 4GB, but Windows 32Bit has a 3GB limitation.

Want to add ddr3 memory to my p5qc board


Hello
The motherboard supports DDR3 1333/1066/800 MHz or DDR2 memory 1066/800/667 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest operation system, 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The dual-channel DDR3/DDR2 architecture doubles the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance, eliminating bottlenecks with peak bandwidths of up to 19.2 GB/s.
DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs work only on the black slots for one DIMM per channel
2 x DIMM, Max. 8 GB, DDR3 1333/1066/800 Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory 4 x DIMM, max. 16GB, DDR2 1066 / 800 / 667 MHz, Non-ECC, Un-buffered memory Dual channel memory architecture When installing total memory of 4GB capacity or more, Windows® 32-bit operation system may only recognize less than 3GB. Hence, a total installed memory of less than 3GB is recommended DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs work only on the black slots for one DIMM per channel. Ensure to install the DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs ONLY on the BLACK slots! Refer to www.asus.com or this user manual for the Memory QVL(Qualified Vendors Lists). When installing total memory of 4GB capacity or more, Windows® 32-bit operation system may only recognize less than 3GB. Hence, a total installed memory of less than 3GB is recommended.

Can Gigabyte GA-8I945PLGE-RH supports 4gb ram?


Sorry, but at the moment you can't do that. This is because the BIOS is programmed to manage only 2GB memory. I searched for BIOS upgrade to resolve the memory issue but with no luck. At the moment your motherboard supports only 2 GB RAM.

4gb ram not detected


hey
First of all kindly specify what how many rams slots and how many ram chips are there
like 1 X 4GB or 2 X 2 GB
Generally,
with RAM there can be a few problems
1) the frequency of ram whichmotherboard supports might be less than the freq at which the ramyou are puttin works, hence in this case RAM wont work on this motherboard and ull have to get the RAM replaced
2) some motherboards donot support a 1 x 4 GB RAM where as they might support a 2 X 2 RAM (ifyou do have 2 mem slots for ram)
and then there is the mosttrivial problem of the slot not being clean or arm not being putproperly, i can think of ne other reason for the ram not workingproperly..
For further assistance feel free to mail me at

cheers

4gb on msi k8n neo-4 F


Hello pejegess,

If your OS is reading the 4Gb, it will be running the 4GB even if the bios is only seeing 3GB. You may just need to update the firmware on your motherboard but I suggest that you just leave it as is since the OS is recognizing the 4GB.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong
