Windows 7 Hardware Reserved Memory (2/4 gigs showing) - Page 2

post #11 of 56
Find the one memory slot that works, and then test each stick individually. If it POSTs each time and recognizes the 2GB of memory, then we can rule out one stick of memory being dead.

Next try running in the other two dual channel slots. Perhaps your board just doesn't like running them in the two you had them in.

If one channel (pair of slots) doesn't work, it is most likely a bent pin in the CPU socket. Carefully remove the CPU from the socket and make sure there are no bent pins. It could also just be a dead RAM slot, which is far less common than bent pins. Since you've done multiple reinstalls and messed with MSCONFIG, I'm fairly sure this is a hardware-based issue. If the bios doesn't detect the 4GB of memory, there is no way Windows can. You would only need to mess with Windows settings if the bios recognized all 4GB and Windows didn't.

I did exactly what you mentioned in the first part of your post. Therefore I do not believe one of the sticks is dead.

I also did the second part of what you mentioned and the PC simply would not boot. the manual for the MB states you have to use the slots I have my ram in. Unless of course you use all 4 slots at once.

The CPU thing I understand where you're coming from. Not sure if it was in this post or another post but I have mentioned I've tried doing that already.

Thanks for the suggestions man. WIsh something would work

Sorry for missing that part. I'm really out of ideas.

Hope you get everything straightened out

My brother and I share the same system and we have the same problem as well.

Currently using an i7 860, 4GB DDR3-2000 G.Skill Ripjaws, and a P55 FTW. The BIOS recognized the 4GB of RAM, but Windows 7 displayed the same thing you have as well as being extremely, extremely unstable. Memtest also displayed 500+ errors on XMP and stock settings. Today, I RMA'd my Ripjaws in exchange for the similar spec'd version of the G.Skill Tridents. Hopefully that'll actually fix the problem.

See my brother's thread for the other bits of the story: http://www.overclock.net/intel-memor...ng-else-i.html

Your problem seems to be a good bit different then mine as the BIOS actually shows all 4 gigs for you. My BIOS does NOT show all 4 gigs. It will only show 2. I got no idea what brand ram to buy now though. I was gonna exchange the corsair for GSkill but it seems many people are having similar problems with Gskill..

Honestly I'm starting to think it's the MB now.

Could you do me a favor. Go to "Performance Information and Tools" then "View and Print Details". Copy and paste the information here so that we may see it.
