Problem when using 4gb ram - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Thread Starter 
nope sorry, its a 32bit XP and Vista. I know that most stuff cant use the full 4gb anyways, but was told that at least it could use full 2gb for games, and all the idle runniig processes could use the other memory

I'm pretty sure that only XP 64-Bit and Vista support 4GB's of RAM, actually I think Vista does even more, not sure about XP 64-Bit though. I was wondering about the same thing too, I just have XP Home and was wanting to upgrade to 4GB's of RAM and knew that I'd have to go with one of those OS's to do it. I just don't want to go with Vista until they have released at least a SP1 or something.

Like what? Just wondering what those issues are.

I would look around and see if anyone else in any forum is having issue with this board and 4 gigs of ram.

You may have to run the vmch a tad higher also. I would bumb that up a bit since its stressing your mobo more to take care of the extra ram. Also I would try loosening the timings a bit to make sure that isnt it.

What speeds and such are you running at. Could you post a screenie of your ram timings and speed.

This is a rather common issue. Some mobos/chipsets just don't like running 4 double-side modules of certain brands. There's probably nothing wrong with your RAM, the fault lies with your motherboard. You'll have to contact support for your motherboard and find out if there is a hardware compatibility list for running 4 modules.

the timings were 4-4-4-12, altho i might change them to 5-5-5-15....the speed is something like ddr2 835 i think. they are supposed to be 800, but the mobo puts them up to that as the e6600 has been oc'd to 3.01ghz from 2.4

sounds like ur running XP 32bit or perhaps Vista 32bit??

when u turn ur comp on, at the POST screen, does it say "Memory running at dual channled" or "memory Dual-Channel Interleaved" or sumthin like that? and does it acutally detect all 4gb in ur BIOS?

last, when in windows, right-lick My Computer and then properties...how much RAM does it detect? if its a 32bit OS it wont detect the full 4gb..could cause issues with stressing software
