Strategos Posted November 2, 2010 Share Posted November 2, 2010 I've been using Vista 32bit for over a year now and today I decided to upgrade to Win 7 64bit. To my surprise however, both the BIOS and windows detect only 4 out of 6 Gigs of memory. According to Intel spec definition the system can only boot with a minimum of 2 DIMM slots populated. So I removed one stick out of three and I switched the sticks around until I narrowed down one that never gets detected no matter where it's placed. I'm pretty sure at this point that this one is defective but I'll run CPU-Z tomorrow just to make sure. I also eyeballed the cpu pins under different light angles to the best of my ability and saw no bent pins. I'm using default BIOS settings and no overclocking. Is this a case for RMA?
