Physical Memory Wrong!


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

My computer doesn't show the correct physical memory that i have. I found that it was 1G memory shown in the system setting as well as from BIOS, but after the pc crashes, the momory became 512M! After I reboot it couple of times, it will come back to 1G..strange.

 

I have a computer

P4 1.8Ghz,

Two 512Mb Samsung DRR333 Memory,

P4SDX motherboard

MSI GEforceTi4200 128M video card.

 

Anyone could solve the mystery i would much appreciate it,

 

thanks alot!

Just want to add some infos here, i saw that in the boot screen, whenever it said 128 single channel, the memory will be 1G, and 64*2 dual channel, in windows XP Pro here, shown only 512 MRam.

 

THanks.

Thanks for your replies!

There are 2 vertical slots and 2 horizontaly slot in my computer, and the RAMs were put in vertical and horizontal respectively, and in blue color slots. Lastnight, I took 1 RAM from the horizontal one and put it together with the vertical alignment in black color slot. And it works fine right now, shown 64*2 channel with 1G memory, but I am not sure I have doen the right thing. Should them sit in different channels?

 

Thanks again

Well, here's how mine is setup...

 

I have three slots. Two teal and one purple. To use non-dual, I put them both in teal. To use dual, I put one in purple and another in one of the two remaining teals.

 

Sounds like you did it right... But my board is different.

mmm, well, i think it's running in single channel 1 G, bcos the rams are installed in the same channel.

 

When they are separated in different channels, the windows craches afwards and restart with 521Mram. too bad...
