Question about MSI K8N Neo4-F Motherboard
I installed 4 x 1Gb of ram.
The system/bios say 3 Gb installed, Vista Ultimate say 4Gb installed.
Does the system use the full 4GB or only 3GB?
FYI - The manufacturer specifications note that the bios will only note 3GB even though 4GB are installed.
Due to the South Bridge resource deployment, the system density will only be detected up to 3+ GB (not full 4GB) when each DIMM is installed with an 1GB memory module
Here is the link, follow it all the way to
Hope this helps.

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.
