Hello and thanks for taking a look
Heres my issue, I just got done putting together my new CPU and motherboard
My motherboard is the MSI 785GT-E63 seen here, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130266&cm_re=785gt-_-13-130-266-_-Product
My Issue is that its not detecting all four of my 1gig ram sticks, it only sees three, now is a couple of reviews people had this issue but as another review pointed out, they fail to realize that all they needed to do is raise the voltage.
Now I have never raised anything in any computer's BIOS so I was wondering if any one here has the same motherboard or knows someone that does and knows what and where to up the voltage to the right level, I need someone to tell me step by step what to do it.
what OS r u using if its a 32bit OS then it can only detect a max of 4gb of memory in total. (video card ram + system ram= total memory)
32bit ex: 1gb ram video card + 4gb Ram = 3gb system memory (one 1gb ram stick get thrown out since the video card has 1gb ram)
in a 64 bit OS the cap on memory is much higher
64bit ex: 1gb ram video card + 4gb Ram = 1gb ram video card + 4gb Ram
I am running 32bit but on my last mobo and cpu, the one I upgraded from, it actually showed all four 1gig sticks, the only thing that has changed is the motherboard and cpu.
Step to solve ur issue
Yeah both PCWizard and CPUID say I do have the 4gigs that I do but the computer property says I only have 3.24
Maybe its just the new motherboard, maybe because my other old board that's about 5 to 6 years old, couldn't do something or what ever I'm not sure.
But does this mean I am actually able to use all four sticks of 1gig?
32 bit OS will only let you use around 3.25 and the rest is tied up for hardware such as video, audio, bios ect..
yep 32 bit is highly limited-I suggested installing 64 bit or just being happy with 3.25 gigs
Most stores market 32 bit as being compatible with 4gb but as TIV said it is actually more like 3.3
Hm, that's odd, I guess that's so but its still odd that on my other CPU and mobo, all 4.something another gigs, showed up in computer properties info, while I used the same OS that I am now, I guess it has something to do with how old the mobo was.
I'd love to have 64bit but that's 140 bucks I just don't have XD
I'm pretty sure it was some trickery done by windows that showed you the installed amount and not the true value as you see it now. I've seen that on a few windows systems already after some updates. It's a mute point anyway because even with 64-bit your hardware will still hoard what it needs of the memory. And I've yet to see any normal game or program use more than 3GB of memory at most without going far out of my way to do so.
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - OEM $99
Go to eBay-Win 7 ultimate 64-bit regularly sells for $50 and below.
Edit: And that's RETAIL meaning you can install on replacement computer.
Yeah, I'd love to even have 100 bucks to get a new OS or even $50 to try to get lucky and not get scammed on Ebay but at this point I don't even have $1 to my name, spent every penny I had on mobo & CPU sadly and it will be a while before I come into such money so... Oh well, I'm still getting more out of my computer then I did.
ya and 3.25 vs 4 is not that noticeable.
