RAM trouble

Recommended Posts

I just installed the RAM I got.. same type as what I already had in my machine bringing it up from 512 to 1 Gig.. However..checking the System Info and dxdiag it lists I only have 512 still.. I have swapped the RAM.. putting the new one in the 1st slot.. old in 2nd.. and vice versa.. as well as putting one in the 1st slot and one in the 3rd slot.. And starting the machine up with just the new RAM installed..which worked.. Any idea as to what my problem is? Do I have to do something to get my system to "recognize" the new RAM? I have a MSI 6380E Motherboard

Please check in the bios and see if the full 1.0 Gig of memory is listed. In addition, I would try [url]www.memtest86.com[/url] and see if it shows the full 1.0 Gig of memory! And I would use slots 1.3 and set the Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volt and set the timings manually to Cass 2.5-3-3-7.
