    I may not have elaborated enough with my question.

    I had 1gig of memory consisting of two 512gigs of ram in two slots. I purchased another 1 gig of ram installed it.
    However after installation it was only showing the 1.5gigs, and showing one slot empty. am I led to believe that this will not show up on the amount of memory I have at my disposal.
    I have attached a copy my memory results if it is of any help.

The most likely reason is the memory you have isnt compatible with eachother. If the types of ram are too different they often wont work together. If you google and download a program called cpu-z it will tell you what ram you have in each slot and you can see how different they are.

That's all that it will show until you add more. you can not count the ram on any video card.

    If you moved a 512mb stick to another slot and put the 1024mb stick in its place, you may have a dead slot. At boot up, go into bios to see what it does. I like the free download "cpuz". It can tell you a lot. how many slots and what is in each one.

    If this is an older board and you have pc133 memory. It may only read 1.5gb of ram and allocate the rest to the system. I am running an asus p5ld2 that has a max of 4gb on 4 slots. I ran 4x 1024mb of pc2 667 but at boot up it only showed 3.5 because the rest was allocated to the system so i cut off 2gb of ram. it see and uses only the 2gb. my system runs faster with just 2gb as well. you can get you system to see more but you need to have a board that has m.t.r.r. and know how to config it.

I have intel d845gvs1 motherboard with P4 2.4 ghz, Currently have 2 ram (512mb & 256 mb) how much further can i upgrade the ram, 1GB or 2GB also is the current combination of ram is right?


"Supports up to 2 GB of system memory with DIMMs utilizing 512 Mbit
technology DRAM devices"-intel

you can use 2 sticks of 1 gig apiece to get to 2 gigs of total memory, but you have to make sure that the ram sticks use "512Mbit " technology.

the 512Mbit technology refers to the arrangement of memory chips on the ram cards. a card which uses 64Mx8 (8 seperate memory chips of 64M apiece) would be appropriate.

"Nearly all motherboards only recognize 1 GB modules if they are low density 64M×8 modules. If high density 128M×4 1 GB modules are used, they most likely will not work."-wikipedia"

Problems with Foxconn 6100K8MA-RS Motherboard memory upgrade


This is an oldtime POST code memory error. Likely that ram is either installed wrong, bad RAM or the mobo doesn't like one of the memory sticks.

See http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm.

You must count the beeps.

Memory upgrade


THIS MAY BE A BOIS PROBLEM, THE SOFTWARE OPERATIONAL SYSTEM WILL ONLY ALLOW TWO 2 SLOTS TO WORK IN THE MEMORY CONFIGURATION, EVEN THROUGH YOU HAVE 4 BANKS, MOST LIKELY 2 BANKS WITH THE MAXIMUIN MEMORY OF 2GB PER SLOT FOR THE TOTOAL OF 4GB OF RAM NOT 4 SINGLE 1GB CHIP SETS. YOU SHOULD TRY IT.

Memory type is the major problem with the 741GX chipset. Very touchy. I used Crucial PC3200 High Density memory to start with (2 x 1 gig Memory), system was lagging even though adjusted settings in bios. whenever a USB device was pluged in, the system would stop responding. Switched to low density memory and no problems since (Ultra PC3200 (2 x 1 gig Memory), and the USB device problem is also solved. I am running WinXP with SP2.

Hi,

the memory you're about to purchase will not work. the maximum gig that the computer can handle per stick is only 1 gig. this system is not designed for 4 gig barrier.

hope this helps.

thanks.

It's generally not a good idea to mix sizes as your more likely to get problems, but that said it probably should still work it's most likely your configuration consult your motherboard book as to what order you should install the memory you have.
