Ive just purchaced new RAM from cruicial (512MB DDR3200) to add to my existing RAM wich is the same make and model to make a total of 1024. But in my system infomation it only shows 768MB of ram. Iv contacted cruicial and they say i need to upgrade my BIOS. Im not to keen on doing that as i have heard that it can cause problems. Is there any other way of correcting this without having to upgrade the BIOS? Thx
Before you think about flashing your bios check the motherboards manual to see what memory it should take or check the bios readmes to see if it mentions a fix for memory problems. Have you tried the new stick on its own to see if it registersthe full 512mb and also swap the 2 sticks round,could be a faulty memory slot.
