Missing Memory - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
There is no option to remap memory (that I can find) plus - Is that not a work around for the 32bit limit on memory addressing - wouldn't have thought it required for a 64 bit os. and again, why would it work for an i3 processor, and not an i5?

Thanks everyone for all the help - I don't think I have ever found such an active forum before! Especially not on Christmas Eve!

lol, well helping others is a worthy use of time Guess I need to either accept that 4GB is probably still plenty (which frankly it is), or remove the thermal paste from the CPU and RMA it :-/

Does mean my i3 media pc is going to get 6gb of Ram mind! just a tad overkill!

The memory remapping feature is for 64bit OS. 32bit no matter what you do it won't work
1156 processors have a integrated memory controller, so it's the cpu the one who manages the ram not the motherboard.

Well, strangely it is now working. Here is what has happened since:

I decided to move ram from slot 2 into slot 4 (so I had ram in slot 1, 3 and 4) - this did what I expected and reported only 2gb of ram.

So I thought I may as well accept whats happening and install the 4gb of ram from my media pc - so I put that in slot 1 and 2 and booted, but nothing. So I put it in slot 1 and 3 (which is what the hand book recommends).

This time it booted but complained of an overclock issue and told me it had fixed it, so I thought what the hell I will put the other 4gb in (leaving me a 2gb for my media pc). Rebooted and all 8gb is showing.

I am at a loss, I have no idea why this is now working, like I said with the i3 6gb of ram was no issue.

I'd rather have a workstation with 8gb and a media pc with 2gb instead of a 4g work station and a 6gb media player!

Thanks everyone for the help - great to see a great community here!
