Asus A7V880 - TWINX1024-3200XL - wrong memory size!

Hi Forum!

 

I hope you can help - just bought 2x512MB 3200XL (twinx1024) and added it to my new mainboard Asus A7V880 - the problem is, that only 768 MB are recognized by the system.

 

I left all settings in BIOS alone - any idea why this is? Any chance to get the whole 1024mb? Or need to send it to RMA?

 

Thanks in advance!

Is this RAM by itself or is there a 256Mb stick mixed in?

 

No - I got two CMX512-3200XL of the TWINX series. I just tried to put in one memory at once and figured out that one is only recognized as 256 mb, altough should by 512. I also let memtest86+ check the rams and the one with 512 was ok but the "256MB" bar had many errors (1 test-loop around 140 errors).

 

I think I can be quite sure now that one of the bars is bad - would you agree?

Should I request a RMA? Is there an european RMA center or only the headquater?

Oh - another question - do I need to send back both RAMs or only the one, that is bad?
