P6X58D-E Randomly Not Showing all RAM

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Having an odd problem. Last week I noticed that only 4GB of my 6GB was being recognized by my mobo (build isn't new). I messed around with a few things and eventually fixed it by reseating the RAM. Everything was fine for about a week, and again today it is showing only 4GB of RAM. I will reseat them later today to see if that fixes the problem again, but I'm starting to wonder what the underlying issue is?

Anyone have any ideas? Last week I tried each dimm in slot 1 and confirmed that all RAM sticks register fine individually, and like I said I had all 3 registering after I reinstalled the sticks. But I'm not sure why the problem has returned a week later.

EDIT: CPU-Z reports 6GB the entire time.

Does it show up in the bios? I would suggest asking in the p6x58d-e owners thread.

Are you sure all 6gb showed up the whole time? Are you using a 64 bit OS?

Again check to see if all the RAM shows up in the bios, or boot to a live Linux distro to see if it can recognize it all.

See if you can narrow The issue down to hardware or the OS.

RAM recognition issues with 1366 boards are usually caused by too much/too little CPU socket pressure. I had to remove CPU cooler, raise CPU lever and loosen the 4 hex screws a little at a time. Is it the C1 RAM slot that isn't recognized?
