Windows shows 2.65gig of memory, can you help by explaining where you have accessed that information?

Start - Control - System
It's showing 2556 Mb
I'm within 20 mins of reverting back to XP
I've had enough.

You need the beta drivers from Nvidia: the current final ones don't support SLI. click here

Tried the drivers but still no SLi on/off option but thanks for trying.

Anyone any idea about the memory problem? With 4 Gig, I should be able to disable page file...

Not a clue I'm afraid. I have the same board but only a gig of memory in dual channel mode and when I saw your post I checked mine and it was ok.
I'm back on XP now because of other problems.

What with Vista and SKY broadband, between them, they have almost got me in to the nut house, thanks for the response...

Your 4GB memory problem is because you are using the 32bit version of Vista. On a hardware level you do have 4GB of RAM as the BIOS reports it correctly. However the software side is due to a limitation from a 32bit environment.

However click here for a "fix".

Interesting, I have tried the above an though Vista still reports my system as 2.65Gb. Do I have to do this cmd instrution everytime I start?
Many thanks for your help
