4GB out of 6GB [Solved]

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My bios is only reading 4gb out of 6gb but memtest and cpuz see the 6gb. Any suggestions how to troubleshoot this issue?

Update:I tried updating the bios and randomly reseated the memory in different slots.
Update 2: Randomly reseated again and now shows 6GB. Currently running at default 1333MHz.

Reseat or unplug from the wall for about a minute.

Happens pretty rarely on this CHV where only detects 8 GB of RAM out of 16.
