Default CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 RAM on Asrock P45TS-R

Hi,

I have just install the above 2x4GB Modules on an Asrock P45TS-R motherboard running Windows 7 Pro 64bit.

When Checking "View Basic information about your computer"

Installed memory (RAM): 8GB (3.19 GB usable)

Can some one please guide me on how to resolve this issue.

Many Thanks

Nigsmall

How much memory is shown in BIOS as available and how much is shown in www.memtest.org?
Also this is an older MB and may have an option to re-map the memory in BIOS setup.

Hi,

Thank you for your responce.

BIOS shows 8GB, I went into Resource Monitor, Memory & Found that 4929MB is Hardware Reserved?

Will run memtest over the weekend.

If you an on board graphics card it may be using it for Video Memory, but I would check with the MB maker and see what they say especially if Memtest shows all 8 Gig.
