New DDR2 667mhz 4 gb (2x2gb) is recognized only 2gb


Recommended Posts

I need help on my new Ram upgrade. I just bought Corsair DD2 667 mhz 4 GB 2 x 2GB 200-pin SODIMM Memory Modules and installed into my HP Compaq 2710P Notebook with Window Vista Business 32 Bit. But after several reboot, the new 4gb module was only recognized and counted to 2 gb.


I notice that 32 bit system may not fully support to 4 gb ram, but it should support up to 3 or 3.5 gb. What I did wrong or the Memory modules has the problem?


Any tips and advises are urgently welcome.

Could you post a link to your laptop in the corsair memory finder? I didn't see it there.

thanks for you to help find the solution. The link is:http://www.corsair.com/configurator/system_results.aspx?id=571861.


based on the reading the post issues, I think it could be that the memory kit I bought is with problem or mis labled because my bios reading is only 2 gb as the same as the system meromy reading.


I will go back to Fry's tomorrow for the check.


Thanks, Jack
